Even for the root account, I think it depends of the configuration
of the software used to connect from the outside (ssh, etc.).

I don't know if it is the best way to achieve this, but setting
the 'ttys.allow' capability of login.conf(5) to 'ttyv0' may help.

  1/ Don't set it to 'console'... or be prepared to boot on LiveCD
     to correct the situation :)
  2/ It may be better not to use the 'default' class.
