Description bh_wagener 2000-10-02 18:57:39 EDT
The samba configuration tool, SWAT doesn't open at http://localhost:901/ 
like it is supposed to, either manually or by using the shortcut found in 
the menus.  This might have something to do with the port not being open 
though, and have verified this problem with others.

I am finding the same thing with SWAT. The service won't start up and I cannot 
access any of my other samba servers (port 901) from my RH v7.0 machine.
Comment 2 Karsten Weiss 2000-10-03 10:00:50 EDT
After changing
	only_from localhost
in /etc/xinet.d/swat it works for me now.

But I had no luck with localhost or either (and don't know why).
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2000-10-03 10:04:58 EDT
You need to enable it with chkconfig or ntsysv; it
defaults to disabled.

I flagged both 'smb' & 'swat' to activate on startup via 'ntsysv' and restarted 
my machine a few times. SWAT is still no go. I checked the control panel and it 
says that 'smb' is started but 'swat' is inactive. I tried starting the service 
manually several times with no luck.
