That's your opinion, not a fact. And even if you want to call it a
security problem, that doesn't change the reality of the situation. I
have 300 machines where I don't want people who know just enough to
break things to screw with the machine at their location. Its there to
route. There is no need for anything to appear on the screen, as if
something breaks, it is simply replaced anyhow. The machines have to
be at remote locations, where we have no way to prevent the people
there from messing with them. You assume that because you didn't think
of a reason to do something off the top of your head, that there is no
valid reason. Point is, if your contribution is going to be "you don't
want to do that" when someone asks how to do something, why not just
save yourself the time and not reply?

The lack of a serial port to plug the cable into.
