I have been playing around with Samba for a short amount of time, and wanted to try out SWAT.
I have followed all the guides, first installing using yum, then changing the xinetd.d/swat file to enable it.
disable = no
port = 901
socket_type = stream
wait = no
only_from = 127.0.0.1
user = root
server = /usr/sbin/swat
log_on_failure += USERID
I then restarted xinetd and turned swat on in chkconfig.
I also opened the port 901 in iptables. I can successfully telnet to port 901 from a remote machine.
When I try to use a browser to access the machine at http://ip.address:901
it fails to connect or prompt for a password.
