I know this is not a new topic as I have seem questions on this before...
However, I cant seem to get rancid to work with HP Procurve switches using
ssh. I am getting the infamous banner :

HP J4887A ProCurve Switch 4104GL
Firmware revision G.07.70

Press any key to continue

I know that the newer version of rancid is supposed to have fixed this but I
still cant get it to work... I have trying to get this to work for weeks but
it just will time out trying to get past this banner.. Does anybody have any
idea how I can get around this, so I can use ssh??

Thanks for any help!!
