RE: unauthorized command

Much appreciated, Bryan!

We don't have a lot of need for security for this server (obvious Linux
best practices excepted, of course) , as it is going to be installed
deep in the bowels of a data center.  I thought conserver might just
allow anyone to force a user off, but I learned yesterday that it does
allow anyone to take over a session, putting the previously active user
in 'spy' mode, so I can see why conserver would not allow booting off a
user by default.  Other than taking up the max number of connections,
there would be no need...

I couldn't tell if the error was coming from conserver (console), or
some other component of linux.  ( For example, I was getting a strange
IsMe() kind of error that I don't think came directly from conserver, as
the solution was to add a line with the hostname in it to /etc/hosts. )

I did try reading the manual and searching online (rather
unproductively, as isme and conserver are both common terms), so I
appreciate the timely nudge in the right direction. :)

Have a great day!

This is probably because you're not listed as an 'admin' user.

In the 'access' section, include 'admin jae;' (or whatever username).
So, something like:

   access * {
      admin jae;
