   One way of avoiding this is to always have a console server that has
SSH implemented into the IOS build ( or even a separate vendor that
supports SSH ).    This way you centrally access your network devices from
one spot, authenticated by SSH, if any of the devices in question do not
support SSH ( yes this  can be impractical, but I typically want to have
console access to every  device I administer if possible anyway ).
