Samba SWAT doesnt accept Root Password or User name


I have Samba, and SWAT running. I cannot seem to get my username and password to work, this is my root information.

I use WEbmin, still does not work.

I use localhost:901 on the linux machine itself, and when the prompt comes up, it does not work.

Is there something I am not doing?

All services are up and running that need to be run in order to get Samba, and SWAT to work.

Any help would be much appreciated.

-Matt

What do you mean by your username/pass not working. Do you mean to say that you can't connect Window machines with the samba server,

And between create a seperate Useraccount (NON root) as samba administrator. Because its not a good idea to use the root account as a samba admin and its not allowed too.

More information might help like your distro for example. Also post /etc/xinet.d/swat inside code blocks.
If it contains a line with "disabled" in it, simply delete the line and restart xinetd. By the way, xinetd needs to be running.

Do you have a distro that has the root account disabled? (Ubuntu for example)

Please put your distro in your user profile. It would have answered two of the questions I've posted.
