SWAT doesn't work.
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:59 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.
in /etc/xinet.d/swat it works for me now.
But I had no luck with localhost or 127.0.0.1 either (and don't know why).
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.
