If you are connecting from a different computer, you will not have
sysop permissions until you issue the sysop command (see section 10.164
of the adminmanual).  I usually ssh into the box as sysop and run
console.pl, which gives me sysop privileges from the get-go. This won't
work over a packet connection (well, it might but encrypted packet
transmissions aren't legal in the U.S.)
