    Can't connect XP browser to SWAT901


    Hi, I really need help!
    I've got a LAN which I'm trying to connect a file server which runs fedora 3. I've now spent several hours/days reading and rereading to get one of my XP boxes (192.168.0.20) to connect to the swat port using 192.168.0.200:901.
    I get the error "The page cannot be displayed"
    I include swat file and netstat printout plus "message" file. I can't see anything. No firewalls are running on linux or xp box...iptables are clear.

    Hope some one can help.
    /dubby

    My SWAT file is as follows:
    service swat
    {
    port = 901
    socket_type = stream
    wait = no
    only_from = 192.168.0.20 192.168.0.10
    user = root
    server = /usr/sbin/swat
    log_on_failure += USERID
    disable = No
    protocol =tcp
    }
    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    netstat returns the following:

    # netstat -antp| grep 901
    tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:901 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 2189/xinetd


    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    The end of my /var/log/messages has:

    erm...... try this:

    first, do a "service xinetd restart" and check your /var/log/messages if there's any error (i doubt :P)

    next:
    in your... internet explorer, type in the FULL address instead of just 192.168.0.x:901, i.e. http://192.168.0.x:901

    yeah, IE is annoying. type something like www.myfirewallwithsamba.com:901 (with port but without http://) will give you instant error...

    good luck
