OK, just a few quick questions here. First, what is a good editor for HTML pages that I can use in RedHat 7.0? I'm running Apache, and I just need a editor.

Second, OK, what the Hell, I setup SWAT to configure Samba, and it's not working. I have both the smb & xinetd servieces running automatically, I edited /etc/services to include the line
swat 901/tcp swat

I tested to make sure Samba was running using

smbclient -U% -L localhost

and it was running fine. Then when I try to access swat through a browser by typing
it's comes up with a Search on Netscape for localhost:901

What gives??
Any Help is Greatly Appreciated!

This depressed me for hours today; reinstalled RH7 due to disappearance of all forms of RPM (undoubtedly through my bungling) and couldn't get things back as they were.

Basically Netscape is going to its default DNS to ID the "localhost", which clearly won't work.The xinetd shipped with RH7 apparently can't cope with this.

I did two things...

1 Use RHN update to get the updated xinetd which is meant to solve the naming problem.

2 In Linuxconfig->client tasks-> Name server specification. In the right hand window I specified my workgroup as domain, as DNS1 and IP of the RH box as DNS2.

You may also need to adjust your firewall settings to allow access to port 901.

It all seems to work, and when I dialup to my ISP, netconfig shows the IP's of their DNS, so it all seems to work!
Whether it's safe for net servers/cable modem/ADSL I don't know, but it'll do until my ISP lets me have better access.

And as regards the HTML editor, I installed star Office 5.2 off the deluxe workstation CD's,I think it does all that. There was also a "home page editor" on one of the workstation application CD's;I can't recall the name.

If you don't want that humongous star office app just to do some editing, try using gEdit in GNOME, it throws the tags in the text for you as your typing or whatever....
