The Netopia ISDN router I have includes a PCMCIA slot, and the "features"
list in the manual  says something about using that for dial-in maintenance.
There is, however, nothing in the manual about actually setting it up or
using it, and a quick note to Netopia support elicited an admission that the
feature "was never implemented."  I assume that later model Netopia ISDN
routers are diffo.

So, some care is required along the Netopia path.
