If using BlockOutTraffic 3.0.0 - Build 3 ...
Port 901 had to be opened ... 'IPCop access'

… but only if, you are using “BlockOutTraffic”

The only prerequisite that was necessary for “Samba” was the changing of the gui port from 445 to something else … so that “Samba” could use that port. In my travels I came across information about a script or command, built into IPCOP, that could change the default gui port … though I have no idea where to look for it now … but that simple modification can be done with “guiports-1.6.2.tar.gz”, easily.

I see from the picture you provided that you are using port 446 to access the “Samba” page … so I can assume you did change the gui access port successfully (port 445 being needed for the share).

It’s kind of sad waiting two weeks for such a simple answer … but here it goes (sorry about the delay) …

Try using the following url … (the IP is specific to dxighithall’s example)

Upon success, within the SWAT settings, consider disabling the printer & / or other services that you don't need (for security & resource reasons).

Good luck …& if that doesn’t work … say something & I’ll reinstall it (& then post a better response).
Hope that helped.
Thanks a lot!!! now I can use SWATool
