I am not able to access SWAT from any other host besides the one running
the SWAT daemon.

No firewall blocking access on either side.

# netstat -lnt | grep 901
tcp        0      0       *                 

works fine connecting from localhost using:
lynx localhost:901

Unavailable using public IP on a remote host.. i.e. going into Firefox and

SWAT is configured through xinetd:

# cat /etc/xinetd.d/swat
# default: off
# description: SWAT is the Samba Web Admin Tool. Use swat \
#              to configure your Samba server. To use SWAT, \
#              connect to port 901 with your favorite web browser.
service swat
        disable = no
        port            = 901
        socket_type     = stream
        wait            = no
        only_from       =
        user            = root
        server          = /usr/sbin/swat
        log_on_failure  += USERID
