View Full Version : Samba Swat dosen't auth any of my accounts

Below is my Samba Swat config. I connect to it by this URL and it asks me for user name and password, So I filled in root's username and root's password. It dosen't auth me. I've been searching at docs and at google about this but they all told me to use root and root's password. Any advice?

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

You have to connect to port 901, not 904 to connect to swat.

What I would do is to open up a terminal, type "tail -f /var/log/messages" (you need to be root or use sudo to look at /var/log/messages), try to log into swat again and see if any error messages are displayed.
