Simple problem, not sure how to fix tho.

I just reinstalled Windows Xp on my desktop. And FreeBSD 5.1 RELEASE on my servre box. I am setting up samaba, and want to use swat.

First I renamed the smb.conf.defaul to smb.conf
Then I enabled the start up up scripts in .rc
Then I pico -w /usr/etc/services - Made sure Swat 901 was there.
Then I checked inetd.conf and uncommented swat, to enable it.
I forwarded the 901 port on my router.
I rebooted the FreeBsd box.

For some reason when I try to 192.168.1.XXX:901 it doesn't work? Why Is this. This is driving me nuts!

--- Yes smbd, and Nmbd are running..

Moved: It would seem you posted this in a Linux - General forum when your configuing samba to work with Windows XP and BSD, so I've moved it to the BSD forum where its more suitable. Please try to pick the most appropiate forums, that's why we have different forums, or we'd just have one big one for everything then... Regards.
