New Ita s "ip console" for the machine.
Or a virtaul console tyoe thing like vmware-server-console.

Its really cool. You can add a card to nearly any machine to get this.

Only problem is it requires another IP address and ports.

You could re-direct ports from one IP addrsss to another behind a NAT/firewall setup.

IOW, port 9999 to port 1024 for the remote console... etc. 10001 for the remote websetup... etc.

Various options exist.

New Define resonable.
Some machine comes with stuff like integrated Light Out in them (HP Proliants do), Dell has them

Remote Insight boards used to be popular, but HP owns them and its now iLO.

Belkin makes an single host IP Console... but it ain't cheap.

New A few hundred dollars.
The IP KVMs and remote power switches run around $600... that's a bit pricey for a non-commercial machine.

New Made me think of STONITH
When the one of the original Linux clusters came out, they referred to the fact that runaway nodes could damage your file system so all the nodes needed to be on a power switch that could be controlled.

When a node refused to ack and accept control from the master, the master pulled the power on the node.

STONITH - Shoot the other node in the head.
