    The SWAT utility is a GUI that comes with some Samba installations. Unfortunately it isn't activated by default.

    • 1) SWAT activation is governed by the xinetd process. The SWAT specific xinetd configuration file is:

      /etc/xinetd.d/swat

      2) Edit this file and make sure that the "disable" field is set to "no" like this:

      disable = no

      3) Restart xinetd and you should be able to access SWAT on TCP port 901 via your browser to configure Samba once more.

      Restarting xined: # /etc/init.d/xinetd restart

      URL to configure SWAT: http://localhost:901

    Make sure u allow the connection on port 901 if u have a firewall depending whether u r using iptables or ipchains.
