Thanks for your caution captain. I first attempted to use SWAT with SSL a while ago and loading it up was a bit overwhelming for me at that time. I am only on a small LAN so security concerns are not the greatest at this time, as we grow though....
Any suggestions as to an "easy" way to load SSL?

Problem solved!

I found it. The problem is not Samba or Swat at all. It's Apache.

Evidently, it's a security feature. In the default setup, Apache will only listen to port 80. You need to tell it to listen to another port, as well.

Click on the Green Lizard | Control center | YAST2 | Network services | HTTP server.

You will see, "Service enabled." Underneath, you will see a list of ports that the web server is listening on. By default, the only port is 80.

Click on Edit | Add. Add port 901 to the list for All. Click on OK and you are done.

The new Swat program looks pretty much the same as the old one. There are a few more options, as you might expect.

Have fun.

SWAT/SMB difficulties raise their ugly head again

Hello. Four years after this thread begun and I too am researching how to solve my SWAT difficulties. I am running FC8, and have installede Samba and its respective SWAT. I have verified my smb.conf file exists as well as the swat binary in /etc/xinetd.d. That file includes the modified disable = no as well as the added protocol = tcp that captainp mentioned. Trying to invoke SWAT using doesn't work, neither does the localhost approach.

Any helpful suggestions would be greatly greatly appreciated.

smb, swat
