Err, removing the .pid files fixed what you were complaining about.
(loncontrol not running)

Non-authenticating would be a seperate problem that could have been
easily fixed most likely by taking a look in lond.log

Most common problems that cause non authentication are
beacause can lonc and lond aren't talking.
   (do you get the login page, on the machine in question? 
   for access servers is there a lonc process for the server in question
   marked as 'DEAD')?

Only if you are curious, as I am sure it was something simple.
