I just tried it and got the same error. You have to enable swat.
In your /etc/xinet.d directory, you need a file something like this: (Called
# 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.
port = 901
socket_type = stream
wait = no
# only_from = localhost
user = root
server = /usr/sbin/swat
log_on_failure += USERID
disable = no
Then, stop and restart xinetd:
To make sure things have gone well,
netstat -apn | grep xinet
should show you port 901 is being monitored.
My other problem was I was using the -a option with swat, and xinetd
BTW, swat is overrated in my book. If you need quick access to documentation,
man smb.conf is much faster.
