swat does not work
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:34:12 EDT
Description of Problem:
swat connection refused
Steps to Reproduce:
1. pick swat from the menu---connection refused
2. enter http://127.0.0.1:901-----connection refused
swat configuration file for 7.1 has changed style and place. It is now
found in /etc/xinetd.d/swat. However, it is wrong! Change the line "server
= /usr/sbin/swat swat" to "server = /usr/sbin/swat". It works then,
assuming "disable = no".
It already is that... which version of swat are you running?
Version reported against was samba 2.0.8-1.7.1 (no longer current), and I've
verified that this problem is not present in that package.
I use samba 2.0.10 and I modified the /etc/xinetd.d/swat file (I wrote
disable=no), however, as root, swat does not work. The connection is refused.
Is that normal?
I'd guess that xinetd either isn't running, or you haven't done a "service
xinetd reload" after the change.
