Hi all,

I installed samba with "swat" USE flag, however it doesn't run according to web browsers. I changed "disable = yes" to no in /etc/xinetd.d/swat. So now it's
# 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.
# $Header: /var/cvsroot/gentoo-x86/net-fs/samba/files/3.4/swat.xinetd,v 1.1 2010/02/26 20:11:18 patrick Exp $

service swat
   port            = 901
   socket_type     = stream
   wait            = no
   only_from       = localhost
   user            = root
   server          = /usr/sbin/swat
   log_on_failure += USERID
   disable         = no

I can see it listens to port 901 with
# netstat -lpn|more
Active Internet connections (only servers)
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address           Foreign Address         State       
PID/Program name   
tcp        0      0    *               LISTEN     
tcp        0      0   *               LISTEN     
tcp        0      0    *               LISTEN     

Why doesn't it start? Even "nc localhost 901" doesn't respond. Firefox says "Connection was reset".....

What should I do?


For info, my emerge --info says
# emerge --info

Anything in the logs? I don't have xinetd installed, but check the main xinetd.conf (not sure of name) file, a long time ago I remember fighting with a vnc config due to an IP restictions in the main xinetd.conf file, not just the xinetd.d/vnc file. Worth a look.

log file log.swat is untouched (the change date is Sep 17 05:36.....last year). A lot of "Unable to connect to CUPS server /var/run/cups/cups.sock:631 - No such file or directory". So this isn't related to this issue.

/etc/xinetd.conf is like this. Actually, access restriction defaults is from localhost, but it is what I need... :?:
$ more xinetd.conf
# This is the master xinetd configuration file. Settings in the
# default section will be inherited by all service configurations
# unless explicitly overridden in the service configuration. See
# xinetd.conf in the man pages for a more detailed explanation of
# these attributes.

# The next two items are intended to be a quick access place to
# temporarily enable or disable services.
#   enabled      =
#   disabled   =

# Define general logging characteristics.
   log_type   = SYSLOG daemon info
   log_on_failure   = HOST
   log_on_success   = PID HOST DURATION EXIT

# Define access restriction defaults
#   no_access   =
   only_from   = localhost
#   max_load   = 0
   cps      = 50 10
   instances   = 50
   per_source   = 10

# Address and networking defaults
#   bind      =
#   mdns      = yes
   v6only      = no

# setup environmental attributes
#   passenv      =
   groups      = yes
   umask      = 002

# Generally, banners are not used. This sets up their global defaults
#   banner      =
#   banner_fail   =
#   banner_success   =

includedir /etc/xinetd.d

but fortunately I succeeded in manually editing /etc/samba/smb.conf. So I will bring up this issue if anything, next time.

Thank you!
