We have many "GbE2c Ethernet Blade Switch for HP" switches in our 
company and we want get its configs for Rancid.

In HP Blade switches haven't same software than in HP Procurve switches.
I can login to switches with hlogin but I can't get configurations.

I'm not very good coder but I you can tell me what I need change I think 
   I can get it working.

My hlogin and manual config getting log below.

Best regards, Olli Janatuinen

bash-3.1$ hlogin
spawn hpuifilter -- telnet
