  NOOOOOOOOOO! Octopus cables BAAAAD! PMs have no ssh, either.

I don't see the drawback of an octopus cable. Especially if its just
getting converted to RJ45 and patched into a panel, anyway.

Everywhere I've seen real console access implemented, its been on a
private LAN with ssh access through a bastion host. There you can
implement whatever authentication you want.

Thats a shame. They're solid reliable boxes that are only getting
harder to find.
