thanks for the reply...well it rurns out i am not running inetd-the output i get for ps aux | grep inetd was:
rmanocha 2563 0.0 0.2 3528 552 pts/1 R 10:16 0:00 grep inetd
i tried it with root too but got the same result.
i tried to do the same(ps aux | grep xinetd) but that gave me the same result as inetd:
root 2830 0.0 0.2 3528 552 pts/1 R 10:25 0:00 grep xinetd
newayz i have i created a file called swat in my /etc/xinetd.d folder with the following in it:
port = 901
socket_type = stream
wait = no
only_from = localhost
# only_from = 192.168.0.4m
user = root
server = /usr/sbin/swat
log_on_failure += USERID
disable = no
i dot know if this is valid but i am running some process called init(excuse me if this is somethign else completely....i just think it kind of sounds similar-
i dont know why this is not working either....well newayz i got webmin and that is working....it has an option for swat too so i clicked on it and i did get an identification screen but even that did not allow me to log into swat.
do i have to do something in my smb.conf?
i even added root to my list of smbusers.
I dont mind using webmain but i would really love to get swat working as i am going for a job interview 2morow and i am pretty sure they would ask me if i know how to administer samba using swat.
well thanks for the help.
