Instead of using the loopback IP address, try instead with the IP
address of your crunchbang box, which I assume is 192.168.1.x or
something like that.  Or even just the name of your host, since you
define it as 'crunchbang' in the conserver.cf file.

Then, when you connect using 'console switch1', run it as a regular
user and authenticate with your regular user password instead.
Conserver does all it's authentication through the regular Unix user
routines.  Because your config allows anyone read write (rw *) it
should just work.

Don't run it as root, run it as your regular unix username.  Also,
just do:

     console -p 862 switch1

and it should prompt you for your unix password, which you enter and
then you should be all set.
