Gosh!!!!!! I've spend the whole night over this damn tool and finally it
solved in such easy way!! Hey, Gordon where have you been before?!!
kidding.... Thanks pal!!! Now I realized my mistake, I just tried all
this time to modify "xinetd.conf" instead of "swat" binary file (I'm
right?, Is it binary or it is a conf file of "swat"? in such case why it
comes without "*.conf"? Does it necessary? It is marked as "plain text
document") in "/etc/xinetd.d" folder!!!!
Let me ask me ask you more question: what is about the file I have
in /usr/sbin/swat folder? Is this the binary file? At least it marked as
"executable" on it.

I guess I have some up side down picture.

One more thing: "chkconfig swat on" enables loading this process at the
start up? If no, how do I enable it?
