We observed the very-faint X-ray transient XMMU J174716.1-281048 during a total of 5.5 ksec Swift/XRT pointings, performed on May 13 and May 17 2007. We have clearly detected the source during our observations. By fitting the source spectrum with an absorbed powerlaw model (nH=9.0E22 cm-2, photon index=2.25), we find an unabsorbed flux of 7.4E-12 erg/ cm2/s (2-10 keV). Del Santo et al. (2007; astro-ph/0704.2134) suggested a distance toward the source of approximately 3 to 4 kpc, based on the type-I X- ray burst detected by INTEGRAL (ATEL #970).
