In fairness, you would get a similar error if you were trying to connect
to the SWAT web server and it wasn't running, without anything to do with
e.g., if I tried to access Webmin on a machine that does not have it
installed, I would get the error
Netscape's network connection was refused by the server ipaddress:10000
(10000 is the port number for Webmin).
So, I think the question, is valid, and may not have anything to do with
proxies. Basically, it means that SWAT is not enabled on the server.
As to how to make it so... that's another story (not acquainted with the
xinetd.d approach... yet).

This error message indicates that you've told Netscape that you have a proxy
server running on localhost at port 901. Last time I checked :-) swat is a
pretty lousy web proxy (it's a handy Samba configuration tool though) so
either point Netscape to the correct proxy or tell Netscape that it's
directly connected to the Internet and you'll be right.
