Which platform are you talking about the MX2800 or MX2820?
The MX2800 doesn’t support SSH, however the MX2820 supports SSH.
I do agree with your premise “not logging off gracefully can tie up ports”. I also agree with the premise of hard setting the Management Interface vs. Auto (MX2800 supports 10mb half duplex and the MX2820 supports 10mb or 100mb).
Both of these platforms are EOD aka end of development.

Sorry yes it is a 2820.
SSH does work, just it will stop responding eventually at which point my monitoring server stops getting replies on ICMP or SSH and from that point the only solution is to reseat the board which brings it back up without needing to reboot the actual MUX I am told.
First step is i killed the SSH check, the line setting may or may not be contributing but with your confirmation I am going to go with what I have always done and force the speed/duplex.
Thanks for the quick reply!
