	package manager in this case takes care of the installation and 
	configuration. This section is only for those who have compiled 
	swat from scratch.
	</p><p>After you compile SWAT you need to run <code class="literal">make install
	</code> to install the <code class="literal">swat</code> binary
	and the various help files and images. A default install would put 
	these in: </p><div class="itemizedlist"><ul class="itemizedlist" type="disc"><li class="listitem"><p>/usr/local/samba/sbin/swat</p></li><li class="listitem"><p>/usr/local/samba/swat/images/*</p></li><li class="listitem"><p>/usr/local/samba/swat/help/*</p></li></ul></div><div class="refsect2" title="Inetd Installation"><a name="id307074"></a><h3>Inetd Installation</h3><p>You need to edit your <code class="filename">/etc/inetd.conf
		</code> and <code class="filename">/etc/services</code>
		to enable SWAT to be launched via <code class="literal">inetd</code>.</p><p>In <code class="filename">/etc/services</code> you need to 
		add a line like this: </p><p><code class="literal">swat            901/tcp</code></p><p>Note for NIS/YP and LDAP users - you may need to rebuild the 
		NIS service maps rather than alter your local <code class="filename">
		/etc/services</code> file. </p><p>the choice of port number isn't really important 
		except that it should be less than 1024 and not currently 
		used (using a number above 1024 presents an obscure security 
		hole depending on the implementation details of your 
		<code class="literal">inetd</code> daemon). </p><p>In <code class="filename">/etc/inetd.conf</code> you should 
		add a line like this: </p><p><code class="literal">swat    stream  tcp     nowait.400  root
		/usr/local/samba/sbin/swat swat</code></p><p>Once you have edited <code class="filename">/etc/services</code> 
		and <code class="filename">/etc/inetd.conf</code> you need to send a 
		HUP signal to inetd. To do this use <code class="literal">kill -1 PID
		</code> where PID is the process ID of the inetd daemon. </p></div></div><div class="refsect1" title="LAUNCHING"><a name="id307169"></a><h2>LAUNCHING</h2><p>To launch SWAT just run your favorite web browser and 
	point it at "http://localhost:901/".</p><p>Note that you can attach to SWAT from any IP connected 
	machine but connecting from a remote machine leaves your 
	connection open to password sniffing as passwords will be sent 
	in the clear over the wire. </p></div><div class="refsect1" title="FILES"><a name="id307184"></a><h2>FILES</h2><div class="variablelist"><dl><dt><span class="term"><code class="filename">/etc/inetd.conf</code></span></dt><dd><p>This file must contain suitable startup

		common places that systems install this file are <code class="filename">

It will rearrange the entries and delete all 
	comments, <em class="parameter"><code>include=</code></em> and <em class="parameter"><code>copy=

	smb.conf</code> then back it up or don't use swat! </p></div><div class="refsect1" title="VERSION"><a name="id307296"></a><h2>VERSION</h2><p>This man page is correct for version 3 of the Samba suite.</p></div><div class="refsect1" title="SEE ALSO"><a name="id307305"></a><h2>SEE ALSO</h2><p><code class="literal">inetd(5)</code>, <a class="citerefentry" href="smbd.8.html"><span class="citerefentry"><span class="refentrytitle">smbd</span>(8)</span></a>, <a class="citerefentry" href="smb.conf.5.html"><span class="citerefentry"><span class="refentrytitle">smb.conf</span>(5)</span></a></p></div><div class="refsect1" title="AUTHOR"><a name="id307334"></a><h2>AUTHOR</h2><p>The original Samba software and related utilities 
	were created by Andrew Tridgell. Samba is now developed
	by the Samba Team as an Open Source project similar 
	to the way the Linux kernel is developed.</p><p>The original Samba man pages were written by Karl Auer. 
	The man page sources were converted to YODL format (another 
	excellent piece of Open Source software, available at <a class="ulink" href="ftp://ftp.icce.rug.nl/pub/unix/" target="_top">
	ftp://ftp.icce.rug.nl/pub/unix/</a>) and updated for the Samba 2.0 
	release by Jeremy Allison.  The conversion to DocBook for 
	Samba 2.2 was done by Gerald Carter. The conversion to DocBook XML 4.2 for
	Samba 3.0 was done by Alexander Bokovoy.</p></div></div></body></html>
