From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0)

In versions 7.0 and 7.1, SWAT will not function.  This seems to be related 
to the move to XINETD.  All recommended work arounds posted have been 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Fresh install
2.verify SWAT is listed in /etc/services
3.verify that:
disable = no 
only_from =
are specified in /etc/xinetd.d/swat file.
3.verify HTTPD, SMB & SWAT are set to start automatically 
(/usr/sbin/ntsysv used to do this)

Actual Results:  SWAT not work with Red Hat 7.0 or 7.1 (Samba 2.06, 2.07 
or 2.2 tried)

I have not seen anyone in newgroups successfully resolve this issue.

It works here - you probably forgot to do "service xinetd reload", use
"localhost" in your web address (as opposed to your.name.com) or ran into some
other local configuration issue.
