RH9 - swat/samba = hair all pulled out =(


(new new newbie)
so when i try to access swat via h ttp://localhost:901 it tells me connection refused.
it is a straight off the cd RH9 install, with all updates installed, and samba 3.
for now, i would just like to know how to get my swat up and running, then i will tackle the samba issues later (if they are still there). =)
(and, yes, i have looked a bunch of places for the answer to this, one person had the exact same question, but it was never resolved) =1

home network:
linux = file server
xp = workstations

Thankyou

You probably need to install the swat package:
ftp://fr.rpmfind.net/linux/redhat/up...8.9.0.i386.rpm

Be carefull with swat - backup your config fiels first. I have had bad experiences with it screwing up config files. I find it much easier to edit the config by hand.

Filsee,

You don't have to install swat and deal with configuring. Just install Webmin or download it from www.webmin.com. Once installed, you can access Swat via http://localhost:10000/samba/swat.cgi. This way, you don't have to configure anything and you get the same Swat Interface.

How did you install samba 3? Did you install it from rpm or source?

am playing with webmin right now.=)

it looks pretty cool so far, but am still dealing with some issues.

how about this now, when i go to a shared folder from one of my windows boxen, it automatically tries to log me in as guest, and won't let me change it, but still requires a password. =1
my guest account is disabled, and the other user accounts are all set up, both in samba and in redhat.

ideas?

Thankyou

btw- i just did a complete reinstall of everything, left samba 2.?? and it's working ok.
(samba 3 was rpm)

RH9 - swat

Hi,

I believe in order to get swat working you need to enable the swat daemon (it's been a long time since I've used it, so I'm not 100% sure), The easiest way to enable it would be as root

ntsysv -- level 345 start

check the swat box to enable, then

service swat start

Hope this Helps,

Dave S.

Filsee,

I think the reason you are mapped to the guest account is because you did not setup a Samba account. Check the smbpasswd file to see if your name is in there, and use smbpassw to add users. You might want to set the guest account in your global config to
guest account = ftp
map to guest = bad user
so that anyone who cannot authenticate to the server will login anonymously under the ftp account.

As far as Swat under Webmin, it is not a module by itself. It should be inside Windows Files Sharing or what ever it is called.

There is also another utility that you might want to try at http://ksambakdeplugin.sourceforge.net. You might like it more than Swat. There is no RPM for RH9, but Kconfigure ( http://kconfigure.sourceforge.net ) makes it easier to run configure and install on your system.

i finally got samba up and running all right, only under a pure guest account for all, but at least we can get to our files.=)

i'm going to check out kconfigure and see what it's like. =)

now onto apache. =1

Thanks junkimael, that is a great utility. ( www.webmin.com) That will definatly go on all my servers. It solves my issue of remote access to SWAT, which was the reason I was reading this thread.
