You can generate any given previous configuration from the CVS
repository.  Rather than doing this via command line you may wish to
install the excellent CVSweb on your rancid box:
http://www.freebsd.org/projects/cvsweb.html  This will allow you to
browse through config changes over time, produce graphical diff's, and
download old configs.
It really does bring rancid to life!

I have just installed RANCID on my machine, and have it collecting data
from one firewall.  What I would like is some kind of differential on
this however as it seems to simply overwrite the old configuration with
the new one.


I have read the documentation that I can find, and cannot see anything
about keeping old versions of the log files.  The reason for wanting
this is that the firewall config often gets changed and there is the
possible requirement that we will need to roll back the config a few


Many thanks for any help anyone can provide.
