I have used the commands
/usr/sbin/smbd -D and /usr/sbin/nmbd -D And killall -HUP smbd and killall
-HUP nmbd and killall -HUP xinetd

all of which have produced no results.

>From what I have been able to tell I am supposed to create a file in the
xinetd.d directory with the swat information. Was I also supposed to edit
the xinetd.conf file?

Thanks for your time

I recently decided to set up a Linux machine with the intent to run samba on


I am running Mandrake 10 and I have installed the latest version of samba
from the website.


But I can't seem to get samba and swat to work. Because when I go to
http://localhost:901 <http://localhost:901/>  I receive an error, informing
me that it cannot be reached.


This is what I have done so far.

Edit the services file

Edit the xinetd

Created and edited the smb.conf


>From what I can tell I should be able to access swat now, but it just 
not seem to be working. Any help would be appreciated.


Thanks for your time.
