OK, Stranger Still
Authored by: wesleykonrad on Sep 07, '02 08:30:23PM

I installed 10.2 over top of 10.1.5 but it had been a fresh install of 10.1.5 (I know, why not just start at 10.2? Long story about internal politics) So it was essentially clean. I have tried SWAT with netscape 7, Chimera .40 and IE 5. no luck on any of them. The error just shows up in the browser page.

the system.log shows

Sep 7 19:28:03 Bronwyn xinetd[412]: START: swat pid=18116 from=127.0.0.1

I've read all the comments and tried running the repair you just mentioned but to know avail. This is a clean install of 10.2 running on a G4. I am posting the system.log entries which show xinetd restarting and swat trying to start. I tried both your original code and the other suggested option for /etc/xinetd.d/swat, but neither works.

Sep 12 18:49:06 zeus xinetd[574]: FAIL: swat address from= my IP address
---- snip -- tries to connect to more times with same result ----

About 5 minutes later the log shows the following:

Sep 12 18:56:50 zeus inetd[387]: swat/tcp: bind: Address already in use

Any ideas what is happening here? Many thanks.

The reason for the START and FAIL messages is probably the security--you must either change the "only_from" line in the xinetd file to something other than localhost to address it from your IP. Or use 127.0.0.1:901 from your local machine....
