[Samba] SWAT not working

I don't understand passwords in samba or swat.

But, I get around the problem by starting swat with the -a option.
This is what I have in my inetd.conf file:

swat    stream  tcp     nowait.400 root    /usr/local/samba/bin/swat swat -a

Expect cries of outrage over this suggestion, but it works fine on a home
network without particular security concerns.


> I've installed samba 2.2.5 a while ago and I didn't need swat at that time but now I do.
> I followed the manpage and modified my inetd.conf etc, the swat files are in place but SWAT still gives me errors my password is wrong. I've checked my password etc and still it doesn't work.
