The default setting for SQLite is to ignore user authentication coming from and let all traffic on that interface have full administrator
privilege.  This makes the "fossil ui" command much easier to deal with (as
it avoids the need to log in) and is reasonably safe on a single-user
machine.  There is a setting to disable this behavior and require login
credentials even for connections coming from

When I try this, the error message I get is  "no within an open checkout"
which seems reasonable to me.  What error message are you getting exactly?
And what is the sequence of commands you are using to get it?
