Could someone please tell me if there is a way to add a variable to a command file for processing with nlogin?  For example I want to issue the following command on 170 simliar devices:  "get event > tftp <ROUTERNAME>.log"  The <ROUTERNAME> needs to be unique for each device.  I don't care if it's the device's IP or hostname or whatever...as long as it is unique.  Hostname or IP would be nice though :-)
Also when using nlogin or clogin what's the easiest way to specify a large number of remote devices?  I've got like 380+ firewalls and routers that I'd like to issue a nlogin/clogin against.  I know the command line gives you the option to list each deviceon the same command line...but I was looking for something a little more manageable.  I'd eventually like to automate this...or script it.
Any help or tips would be greatly appreciated!!!
