    # 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
            user            = root
            server          = /usr/sbin/swat
            log_on_failure  += USERID

    samba uses port 139 and 445 try opening them on the Firewall.

    Not sure of you really need Port 445. Try first just Port 139!

    I also find that WebAdmin is better than SWAT.
