I got the same error I did when I tried to do it through inetd

400 Server Error
chdir failed - the server is not configured correctly

any ideas?

I just tried this on a fresh installation of OS X 10.2 to double check it----it works perfectly well. So you've altered one, or more, of the files involved here.

First of all, make sure you disabled the daemon call from inetd by deleting it's entry in /etc/inetd.conf. Then restart inetd.

Second, make sure you are using a good /etc/smb.conf. The process will start up perfectly using the /etc/smb.conf.template file (although you won't have much in the way of service!).

Very odd...

I have a stock 10.2 install, I cut and pasted the above text, and the service worked just as expected -- port 901 gets me the good 'ole SWAT admin pages in my browser.

Have you done anything atypical to your setup? What kind of machine? What OS? For what it's worth, this is a G4/733, 1.2gb RAM, running 10.2 6C115 (retail) in US mode; nearly every sharing preference enabled...

tell me about it.

I have a G4 733 with 384 ram. I am running 6C115. Would there be a different version sent to us Canucks?

I also copy and pasted it. I edited it in pico using su. Would I have to change a permission somewhere perhaps?
