I'll add one more idea to this thread.

If you want to remotely manager the server that is running conserver
then enable it for serial console and wrap a null modem cable into
its port.   Or you could use one of the command executiona like "telnet"  Just remember to use iptables to block the telnet port from 
the outside.

This way you can use pure SSL in conserver and sill be able to access
the console server.
