i'm in the progress of migrating from varnish 3 to varnish 4. Now there
is a slight problem with the cli interface.

I'm starting varnish with

/usr/local/sbin/varnishd -P /var/run/ -a
',,[2001:4ca0:2e03::1:180]:80' -T -f /usr/local/etc/varnish/portal.vcl -s
file,/data/varnish/,10g -h classic,16383 -u www -g www -l
512m -p vcc_allow_inline_c=on

these is no -S option there, but when I try to connect to the cli

telnet localhost 6082
Trying ::1...
telnet: connect to address ::1: Connection refused
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
107 59

Authentication required.

why is authentication required how can I deactivate it.

I'm running
