Thanks: you were right. OLOGIN to the rescue - from the operguide.txt 
page. This page is included in doc/operguide.txt in the distribution as 
well. I had read through it about a week ago and then completely forgot 
about its existence :-(

For the record...

Having discovered OLOGIN, the next snag I struck was the access control 
for services opers. The ratbox-services.conf.sample shows the example:
     user = "flame at";
suggesting that user at ip.address was what was wanted, but I could only 
get it to work by specifying user at host.domain (where host.domain is the 
host pointed to by the DNS PTR record for the IP address in question - 
i.e. user at alias.domain wouldn't work either).

Thank you very much for your help.
