James, in the past when I've needed to do something like this I've
just written a little shell script and had that pass the router name
to the xlogin command.  Also you can then just read the list of
routers from a text file, database, etc.

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 :-)

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.
