I don't have have the word enable.

The syntax is:

Add password router IP router password router enable password

Should I change it to something similar as this?


Add password router IP rancid password enable password 

As suggested?


Thanks for your quick reply.

Do you actually have the word "enable" in there?  The format of the lines I
have is:


add password <router mask> <rancid password> <enable password>


Also, I am not sure wether this particularly matters, but I have some
routers that have different login details to all others, and these are
specified above the rule that states the password for all other routers.


So I have like:


add password firewall1 <rancid password> <enable password>

add password firewall2 <rancid password> <enable password>

add password * <rancid password> <enable password>


Not sure if the order does matter, but I would have thought rancid would
simply look for the first matching line.

I have configured rancid but I m getting an error:

clogin error: Error: extra characters after close-brace

In my.clogin file, here is the syntax of all the routers that I added:


add password router password enable password


Has any one get a problem like this?


Thanks for your prompt reply.
