SWAT on Gentoo

Well if you want to make use of SWAT you need to do the following to get it installed and running.

  1. emerge sys-apps/xinetd
  2. edit /etc/xinetd.d/swat and make sure that disable = no
  3. restart xinetd
  4. and add it to boot
    rc-update add xinetd boot

you should now be able to access swat by loading up your browser and heading over to http://localhost:901, you need to login with root and the root password.

If it doesn’t let you login as root make sure that you added the root user with the “smbpasswd -a” command.  after that you SHOULD be able to login with no problems at all.
