We are just trying to add some ProCurve switches to RANCID.  I have got
various PIX and ASA's on rancid, but this is my first attempt at a HP


I have setup the method for this as {telnet} above the add method * line so
it tries to use telnet rather than ssh for this device.


When I run hlogin <device name> I see the following:


nagios-1:/usr/local/rancid/var/mkone# hlogin <device name>

<device name>

spawn hpuifilter -- telnet <device name>

Trying <ip>...

Connected to <device name>

Escape character is '^]'.

To me, this looks to be all ok (after testing with telnet straight away),
however, when I get to this point, the session seems to die, and I cannot do
anything on the switch, then the connection times out after a short while
and disconnects.


I have tried manually telnetting to the device, and can run commands on the
switch no problems (sh run etc), and get output.


Also, is there any way to use rancid to connect to a device on multiple
ports? For instance I would like to get rancid to get configurations from 2
switches, where the gateway forwards the relevant port to the relevant
switch. Eg telnet on port 23 telnet on port 45.
