Samba + SWAT

Having problems getting swat running. SWAT is installed.

Samba is installed and running the same with xinetd but when typing in my browser swat donīt run.

Any ideas what this might about?

Got the advice to test xsmBROWSER and installed that but I donīt now how that works and there is no man to it?

Iīm pretty new to linux so thatīs probobly the answer but I need some guidance.

By default swat will only accept connections from localhost.

In the SWAT file located in etc/xinetd.d/ make sure that un comment out the following line:
# disable =yes

second whether or you have a LAN make sure:
only_from =

Finally make sure that your host file is intact and it should look something like this: MyLinuxBox localhost

From here you can just type into your prefered browser http://MyLinuxBox:901

But I suggest you install Webmin - much more efficent way of taking care of this stuff.

Ok I 'll look in to the webadmin (don't really now what that is ) thing but just incase here's the swat file I have. If there's something obvious wrong with it please let me now. Have tried it with default uncommented with on and off but no luck so far.


# default: off
# description: SWAT is the Samba Web Admin Tool. Use swat \
# to configure your Samba server. To use SWAT, \
# connect to port 901 with your favorite web browser.
service swat
port = 901
socket_type = stream
wait = no
only_from =
user = root
server = /usr/sbin/swat
log_on_failure += USERID
disable = no
