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 127.0.0.1";
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.
