[Samba] SWAT - Could not connect to port 901

I'm using Suse 9.1 professional.

I've got Samba *almost* up and running. But, I'm a newbie and need Swat to 
configure a few things. I've gone to /etc/services and made sure that I 
have the entry "swat 901/tcp" I have checked /etc/xinetd.d/swat and added 
"port = 901" and changed it to "disable = no" I have gone through the steps 
in the documentation on setting up swat. It all looks correct.

But when I try to run the program, I get the message:
An error occured while loading localhost:901
Could not connect to host localhost (Port 901)

I have all the files installed. I get the same response whether I use 
localhost or I have restarted xinetd.  I'm not using a firewall. 
This is all behind a NAT router that serves as our firewall. When I give 
the iptables -nL command, I get:
Chain Input policy Accept
Chain Forward policy Accept
Chain Output policy Accept

I ran netstat -a and got 230 lines. There was no reference to "901."

I have even gotten Samba and Swat running twice before. Does anyone know 
what is wrong?
