I try to explain more. For example I have 3 cisco routers. All have same
password and username, but one router ask only password. Now I use this

#all routers
add user * user
add password * password enablepassword

And RANCID can login only to 2 cisco's what ask username, third cisco
ask only password, and RANCID can't login.

What I need to change in .cloginrc for login to third Cisco?

If the passwords are the same, then this should work.  if it doesn't
ask for a username, one simply won't be given.

i don't understand that last bit.
