put another NIC in it and dedicat that NIC to your management access... assign 
it an IP in a weird RFC1918 block and you should be ok... this way you can 
always access it even if the other general purpose NIC is not connected to a 
network... never connect this dedicated NIC to any other network outside of your 
complete control... be sure to carry a crossover cable with you so you can 
connect that NIC with the one in your other device... in fact, you might want to 
use a dedicated management NIC in both devices so they can be set up with 
specific static IPs and always be accessible to each other...
