Do you have an entry in /etc/services?  You need a line like:

swat            901/tcp

Also, don't forget to restart xinetd, if you change /etc/services.  Cheers,

I found mayonnaise bottles and poked holes on top
To capture Tinker Bell
And they were just fireflies to the untrained eye
But I could always tell
