Thanks for the suggestion, but that wasn't the problem. I did get it
working, however. The trick was to edit /etc/xinetd.d/swat and comment
out the following line --
only_from = 127.0.0.1
I got to this point after discovering a bunch of error messages pertaining
to swat in /var/log/xinetd.log. In looking back, when I set it up in 8.1, I
was running inetd, not xinetd. When I chose to switch to xinetd somewhere
along the line, I suspect that's when this happened (?). After making this
change, I just went into yast under xinetd and bounced swat to pick up the
new settings. When I try connect now, I get the pop up asking for userid
and password, where I enter root and the root password. Then, viola!, the
familiar SWAT application is sitting there in front of me.
