Check your /etc/xinetd.d/swat file, make sure
 disable         = no

restart xinetd : /etc/init.d/xinetd restart

totally disable your proxy in ie...
ie is sensitive when adding a port, try http://localhost:901/

If it doesn't work, check out your hosts.allow, hosts.deny
or maybe ipchains/iptables...

good luck!
