Samba and swat


ok so I'm a newbie ,but I can't use SWAT on RedHat 8. I use the url http://127.0.0.1:901/ and get connection refused. I know Samba is running because Samba Server (localhost) is in Mygroup workgroup on my XP PC .Its probably simple but.....

Thanks in advance for any help

Is swat enabled to run?

Run "ntsysv" from a prompt and make sure swat has a * beside it. The restart xinetd with "/etc/init.d/xinetd restart"

SWAT should be enabled by default on xinetd, but you may have to add it to the services file: add a tcp line for swat on port 901. That might fix it...

aha: the actual line is:
swat(tab)(tab)901/tcp(tab)#Samba Web Admin Tool
just replace the (tab) with a tab character and insert the line between the two services 901 is between.

The firewall is always a good one to check in instances like this. if you are using ipchains type ipchains -L to see if you have any rules configured and ipchains -F to completely clear them out until your next reboot or until you reset them manually. If you're using iptables you can use the same commands. Don't worry about resetting them until you've tested to see if Swat connects.

The current version of lokkit defaults back to high when it is run. I don't think it is a firewall problem because you are accessing the loopback. is the looback interface (lo) running?
Run "ifconfig" as root to see.
