SWAT issue

Hi,

 

I have installed samba on RHEL 5.4 but I am unable to get swat to appear on the URL in order to configure it.

 

I have disabled iptables and performed the following steps:

 

Install Swat from the RPM

Make sure this line exists in /etc/xinetd.d/swat

disable = no

Also modify this line to include the IP address of my linux host: (example assumes 192.168.1.1)

only_from = 127.0.0.1 192.168.1.1

Verify that the following line is uncommented in /etc/services

swat 901/tcp

Add the following entry to /etc/hosts.allow

swat: ALL

Restart the xinetd service with this command:

service xinetd restart

 

When I enter http://192.168.1.1:901/ nothing appears, not even an errors messages on IE or Firefox???

 

R,

D.

Re: SWAT issue

Shalom,

 

SWAT is a web based gui designed to make configuration of samba somewhat easier for novices.

 

netstat -an | grep 901

 

See if any processes are listening on port 901

 

ps -ef | grep smb

 

See if any samba processes are running.

 

Post results. Next step based on results.
