SWAT is a Web-based interface that can be used to facilitate the configuration of Samba. SWAT might not
be available in the Samba package that shipped with your platform, but in a separate package. If it is
necesaary to built SWAT please read the SWAT man page regarding compilation, installation, and
configuration of SWAT from the source code.
To launch SWAT, just run your favorite Web browser and point it to
with the name of the computer on which
Samba is running if that is a different computer than your browser.
SWAT can be used from a browser on any IP-connected machine, but be aware that connecting from a remote
machine leaves your connection open to password sniffing because passwords will be sent over the wire in the clear.
More information about SWAT can be found in
The Samba Web Administration Tool.
