Would there be any mileage in having some way to connect to network devices
over telnet in addition to SSH?
I know that telnet is insecure, but many network devices (Cisco certainly)
ship with SSH disabled and only telnet out-of-the-box.
My drive for using Ansible is to try and take as much manual configuration
and potential for errors or inconsistencies out of the equation, and do as
much as possible in a controlled and scripted way. It defeats the object
slightly if I have to manually configure SSH and authentication on each new
(For that matter, being able to plug laptop into switch console port and do
initial configuration locally over serial would be another option...)
