The default permissions on new volumes are such that unauthenticated
user only have read/lookup permissions. If the auth2 daemon is running
on the server, you should be able to get an authentication token.

$ clog -h <server> <admin-user-name>
Password: changeme
$ ctokens
    Coda user id: ...
    Expiration time: ...

Normally just running 'clog' is enough, it pulls the first server it
sees in /usr/coda/etc/vstab, and uses the username of the person that
started the app.

If it fails, check if the auth2 daemon is running, and if
/vice/auth/AuthLog gives some indication that a connection was made.
