I ALWAYS Create multiple Console Devices (these are not to be confused with
i5/OS *DEVD), and don't just use the default. This way if I hose one up on
a PC, I can use another one to connect to, or use a different one from a
different PC. The only thing is that you need to be in DST (not SST) to
create these. So, it's the first thing I do once I get my connection up.
