Umm, so you don't send your Webmin password through the Internet in  
plain text, rather than via SSL encryption.

Webmin uses it's own internal webserver, which is unrelated to Apache.

There's no real need to use swat when you've got the ability to edit  
the samba config directly or via Webmin, but if you really wanted to,  
you could presumably set it up to run in inetd.conf.  See "man swat".

You haven't provided any specific information about your Samba  
config, and most people aren't good at reading minds, so you'll need  
to either do something like run Samba's "testparms" and/or look over  
the Samba logfiles....

Unless you've configured an SSL cert, the default ought to be to run  
Apache without SSL...?
