       That was actually the first thing I tried, but it appeared not
       to work. I installed swat ti administer samba shares on this
       machine. The default debian configuration in /etc/inetd.conf
       is for the swat line to be commented out. I removed the
       comment and ran /etc/init.d/inetd restart, but could not get
       into swat via http://localhost:901. I then rebooted the
       machine and it worked straight away.

       I then put the comments back into the file and ran
       /etc/init.d/inetd restart. Swat still worked. Only after a
       reboot did it deny me access. I posted the first message
       because /etc/init.d/inetd restart appears not to reload

       Could someone advise me what I am missing?


Are you using update-inetd?
