Samba, Swat Timed Out
I'm trying to run Samba and more specificlly Swat. I keep getting an error when I try to access Swat through http://localhost:901. "The operation timed out when attempting to connect www.localhost.com"
Things I have done or done wrong ... I'm new, you tell me!
Installed Redhat 8.0 (Fresh install, It's all I had)
Removed Samba RPM's
Downloaded Samba source samba-3.0.21b.tar.tar
Config, Make, Make install (Life is good)
service smb start (Life id good)
# find / -name swat -print
Binary is in /usr/local/samba/sbin/
Verified swat is in services file
swat 901/tcp (life is good)
Created /etc/xinetd.d/swat (as follows)
# default: off
# 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.
port = 901
socket_type = stream
wait = no
only_from = localhost
user = root
server = /usr/local/samba/sbin/swat
log_on_failure += USERID
disable = no
killall -HUP xinetd
(also used Services Configuration interface)
service smb restart (Life id good)
When I try to access Swat in my browser through http://localhost:901. I get; "The operation timed out when attempting to connect ww.localhost.com"
I know I can do the smb.conf manually (maybe) but this is one more thing I want to be able to do. I'm pretty new to Linux and I just want something to work. Baby steps! I have had some experiance with linux in the past.
Help! Help! Any help you can afford me would be great.
