its running but not issuing a listen on port 901

tried using this link no luck either

***********attempted here to try to see if it responds

telnet 901

Connected to localhost.localdomain (
Escape character is '^]'.
Connection closed by foreign host.

************* cat /etc/xinetd.d/swat

service swat

    port            = 901
    socket_type     = stream
    protocol        = tcp
    wait            = no
    user            = root
    server          = /usr/sbin/swat
    log_on_failure  += USERID
    disable         = no
    only_from       = localhost


**** ps -ax |grep -i swat

Warning: bad syntax, perhaps a bogus '-'? See /usr/share/doc/procps-3.2.6/FAQ

    Accepted Solution

    You are running swat standalone and through xinetd. You can only have one or the other. Change disable=no to disable=yes, run "service xinetd restart" and "service swat restart" (without the quotes)
