actually, you enable it by editing /etc/xinetd.d/swat and commenting out 
the disable=yes line w/ a #, then `service xinetd reload`

its not a bad idea to enable the only_from line too, and specify the IP 
of the system or subnet you wish to control it from, this supports style network notation too.
