The last enterasys gear I used it with was rebadged Cabletron gear
with OS tweaks (e.g., SSR3000, SSR8000/8600).

Cableton split into Enterasys and Riverstone back in the day, and the
OS was similar (CLI wise) on a variety of the Cabletron products for
some time.

It's unlikely it works with other gear unless it follows the same CLI
command set as the Cabletron style gear did.
