The question is: can I gain access without one?

The system with no keyboard is 4.8, the rub is it is configured with an IP
address not on the LAN. I have physical access to the system.

I tried: "route add -interface ep0" and sorta got what I wanted.

netstat -rn -f inet

I can tell from the mac adrs that is the correct system. I also have a
cross-over cable.

Can I get there from here?
