Someone was having trouble with SWAT and Red Hat 7.
This is from Red Hat regarding version 7.0, SWAT and xinetd:
SWAT doesn't work with the xinetd default configuration
I have installed SWAT along with Samba, but it does not work. I have
configured it properly via xinetd, but it does not respond to connection
attempts on port 901, even from the local machine.
There is a bug in the internal tcpwrappers functionality of xinetd. The
problem is known and is being worked on. In the meantime, you can change
this line in the /etc/xinetd.d/swat file:
only_from = localhost
only_from = 127.0.0.1
That should allow SWAT to function normally.
The problem has been resolved in an errata update for xinetd. Please see
errata advisory (RHBA-2000:090) for xinetd which resolves this problem.
