It sounds like you're looking for the '--admin-senders' option for hobbit as defined in your hobbitlaunch.cfg file. The default restricts admin commands to localhost only.  If you want to send admin commands from a remote host to the hobbit server, you'll need to append the remote ip to --admin-senders

man hobbitd and look for --admin-senders for details.
