Here's how to:

1, Open YaST;
2, select "Network Services", select "Network Services (xinetd)";
3, click[0] "Enable" if it's not already enabled[1];
4, scroll down the list until you find swat;
5, click the "Toggle Status (On or Off)" button;
6, click finish.

Doesn't matter whether it's 64 or 32 bit. The same procedure applies to
both, and also applies to previous versions as well.

[0] This assumes use of a GUI. If you're using a console, either use the
tab and cursor keys to highlight the required option and press return,
or press the alt-key and the highlighted letter.

[1] The good point is that xinetd is disabled by default, so if you
haven't already started a service, you will need to do step #3. If you
do have a running service, you can skip step #3 and go to step #4.

After doing this, swat works, but is not able to make the network
visible for browsing:
