Hello All Samba-list Members,

I have installed a Samba 2.2.7, the samba-latest.tar.gz, as a PDC on a 
Redhat8.0 GNU/Linux server.  ( Of course, I first uninstalled the original 
samba that came with the Redhat installation CDs by rpm -e samba*.)  The 
installation was successful.  Then I modified /etc/services and 
/etc/xinetd.d/swat as suggested in the installation document uncompressed 
from samba-latest.tar.gz.  But I cannot start Samba SWAT.  The terminal 
output is copied-and-pasted as follows.

Please help!!!

Thank you very much for your assistance.

         log_on_failure  += USERID

To make sure swat, webmin and httpd are running...
[root at ibmapt root]# chkconfig swat on
[root at ibmapt root]# service webmin status
Webmin (pid 1516) is running
[root at ibmapt root]# service httpd status
httpd (pid 979 978 977 976 975 974 973 972 969) is running...
[root at ibmapt root]#

Then run Mozilla with the following URLs:
http://localhost/ to go to the apache test page
http://localhost:10000/ to go to the webmin login page
http://localhost:901/ to get the alert as follows
"The operation timed out when attempting to contact www.localhost.com"

It seemed to me that Mozilla attempted to contact www.localhost.com in the 
internet via the gateway.  But it worked okayed for http://localhost/ and
