I get the following error whether I attempt to access swat via
http://localhost:901, or

An error occured while loading
Connection to host is broken

This is all on Redhat 7.3, running KDE 3.0.2 and using Konquerer not
that I think that matters much.  I've looked over my configs and they
appear to be correct which is why I wrote in to the list. My last email
with the syslog messages pertaining to swat also apply here.... just
very weird but obviously I'm missing something and no idea what it might
be.  This SHOULD work.

Anyway if I nmap localhost I get the following:

Starting nmap V. 2.99RC1 ( www.insecure.org/nmap/ )
Interesting ports on localhost.localdomain (
(The 1594 ports scanned but not shown below are in state: closed)
Port       State       Service
67/tcp     filtered    dhcpserver
111/tcp    filtered    sunrpc
137/tcp    filtered    netbios-ns
138/tcp    filtered    netbios-dgm
139/tcp    filtered    netbios-ssn
901/tcp    open        samba-swat
6000/tcp   filtered    X11

Nmap run completed -- 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 7 seconds

so yes swat appears to be listening.... or xinetd appears to be letting
swat listen, but I still can not connect!!!
