Been there, done that, checked all ports are set correct
i.e. swat   tcp    901
   swat   utp    901
and checked
and checked
and checked
that's why I gave up.....
but now ive put mandrake 8.2 on another machine ( my swat not working was on
a 8.1,but samba was) as a default install and samba wont even run, complains
about not being able to open database files.....Aaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrr
at least it will keep me busy for a couple of years, cant say that about a
console game :o)
but what's even sadder, you do get moving images on a games console.
if only kids of today new the pleasure of that flashing command prompt
curser., not to mention the [ ok ] in green....Yesssssssssssss

But did you have an entry on your pam.d directory?

You need a file samba in /etc/pam.d with at least the following:
auth    required        /lib/security/pam_stack.so service=system-auth
account required        /lib/security/pam_stack.so service=system-auth

I could not get mine working until I placed the entry in. I am not sure if
it is required to reboot the machine or restart pam. It has been too long
since I played with it.

I've been trying to get SWAT working on Mandrake 8.1, looked everywhere,
done everything everybody suggested. Gave up, now do it all in vi.


suppose its like doom on Linux...some people can get it to work, lots can't.

# default: off

figure your Samba server. To use SWAT, \
#              connect to port 901 with your favorite web browser.
service swat
        port    = 901
        socket_type     = stream
        wait    = no
        only_from =
        user    = root
        server  = /usr/sbin/swat
        log_on_failure  += USERID
        disable = yes

      My name is Benjamin Folayan.  I am currently configuring Linux Red

Hat 7.2.  I wanted to use swat but one of the files I am suppose to adjust,
the /etc/xinetd.d/swat file does not exist.  I am suppose to change the
"disable line".  What can I do to set this configuration.  I have tried
reinstalling and that file still is not there.  Is the line somewhere else.
What steps should I follow to get SWAT to work.

Thanks, In Advance.
