Is it listening?  Does "netstat -l |grep swat" turn up anything?

If not, xinetd needs to listen for port 901, easiest was is a "chkconfig
swat on" or you could restart xinetd.

Subject: [Samba] swat not working this time

Hi again,  I've just reinstalled RH 7.2 and Samba 2.2.7 for the
time.... this time swat is not working !!!  I have checked the
file and swat 901/tcp is in there and I have a text file named swat in
etc/xinetd.d directory containing the following...

service swat
port = 901
socket_type = stream
wait = no
user = root
server = /usr/local/samba/bin/swat
log_on_failure +=USERID
disable = no

I can't access is from either the browser on my PC or from KDE's

Have I missed some vital step ?  It all worked last week when I
first/second/third installed everything but I've been busy installing M$
Windoze 2000 for a few days and my brain is addled.
