    Personally I don't like swat, but that is just me. also, when you tried to connect you did http://localhost:901 right? And in /etc/hosts you have set to localhost or lo? And in tthe smb.conf file, you have do not have a hosts allow field?

    If you feel up to it, I have created a samba howto here which explains how to create the server using the smb.conf file and without fancy addons like swat.

    If you want a graphical tool for creating or maintaining the server, you could look into webmin.
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.
