CVS to Redhat...

You need to activate SWAT.

I assume you are using xinetd in Redhat 7.1 as we are.

go to the /etc/xinetd.d directory and edit the swat file.

This is an example of mine.

# default: off
# description: SWAT is the Samba Web Admin Tool. Use swat \
#              to configure your Samba server. To use SWAT, \
#              connect to port 901 with your favorite web browser.
service swat
        disable = no
        port    = 901
        socket_type     = stream
        wait    = no
#       only_from = localhost
        user    = root
        server  = /usr/sbin/swat
        log_on_failure  += USERID
as you can see it is disabled by default, so you will need to enable it.  I also commented out the only_from=localhost so I could access swat from a browser on my workstation by entering http://your_samba_server_ip:901

I hope this help.

  I also left out some info. I need the latest CVS to try and correct an "Access denied, unable to connect" print queue error I get from win nt/2k clients. 

  Thanks again,

  Does anyone have instructions on implanting the CVS source on a Redhat system? I have been attempting to compile and setup, compiling works fine, swat can't be accessed at all even after repeated tries to configure it, and the RPM build feature doesn't seem to work. For my application of samba, I desperately need swat so as the Windows admins here can  administer remotely without having to spend a lot of time learning the better, I mean, another OS. Any pointers to any info would be great. My boss is starting to doubt the viability, but that's probably my fault!


  Thanks for the time,
