I have secure shell access to all my routers on the network. Often i am making changes remotely and am always worried about locking myself out of the device. It has happened a few times when setting up aaa authenitication on the line tty 0 4
Is it possible to setup each device so i have an alternative way in remotely in case this happens? I.e for the servers we have an iLO IP address on each device. Is it possible to do anything like this on the routers maybe on a different port (aux port maybe).
Most folks use the console port for this along with a console server to aggregate several devices' consoles. Several vendors make console servers - just google the term for a long list. I've had good experience with Avocent (formerly Cyclades) boxes. You can even use a Cisco router with async ports (like a 2800 series) for it.
I should have opened two sessions and made the changes and tested as i went along. Too late now though and i am locked out of a few devices so i'll just have to make a site visit and take off the config locally. One piece of software i did use was called packet trap 360
