If you have SAMBA installed, run "emerge xinetd; rc-update add xinetd default; /etc/init.d/xinetd start". Then, edit /etc/xinetd.d/swat so that "disable = no". SWAT should then begin working on port 901.

Is the only way to run swat, to run xinetd? You can't run swat by its self? Isn't xinetd a tcpwrappers type service? I thought you either ran all services by using xinetd, or all individually.

Nope swat is not a standalone servuice. For your next set of questions, ot really. True, there has been a move to stand alone servers over the years vs services started from inetd, but nothig prohibts you from running a mix of both.

Bit late with the reply, but you do not need xinetd (or inetd) to run swat.

Unfortunately, you DO need xinetd to run SWAT.

It listens on stdin for HTTP requests, so you're not going to have any luck running it standalone.
