swat does not start using "http://localhost:901" or "xxx.xxx.xxx:901"

i have the same problem with swat and webaccess linuxconf, i added my host then
added a subnet and cant get swat or linuxconf to work, i did remove the diaable

We've (actually Nalin) traced this to a possible bug in the internal tcpwrappers
implementation of xinetd (I think I got that right).  You need to set up your

only_from = localhost

That'll get SWAT going for the time being -- a fix is in the works.

only_from = localhost


only_from =

A name resolution problem?
