FWD: Configuring Swat

Hi Sean,

I had this problem when I upgraded our servers to RedHat 7.  In RedHat 7 
they changed from running the inetd.d to running xinetd.d.  This is the 
daemon that figures out what programs to start when a port is accessed.  
Port 901 is for swat, this is configured in your /etc/services file.  In the 
/etc/xinetd.d/ directory you'll find a file called swat.  Edit this file so 
it looks like this:

service swat
	port	= 901
	socket_type	= stream
	wait	= no
	user	= root
	server	= /usr/sbin/swat
	log_on_failure	+= USERID

The swat service is disabled by default.  This will enable it.  Also, be 
sure to to restart the xinetd.d or else you will be left scratching your 
head, wondering why I gave you bum scoop.  :-)  You can restart xinetd.d by 
running this command.  (You should be doing all of this as root, btw.)

/etc/rc.d/init.d/xinetd restart

That should get you running SWAT.  If you have any other questions, feel 
free to email me at   russb at kfoc.net

anyone could shed any light on this
