Alright, then to sum up for future people who
may encounter this

If the target device for
Rancid is on a separate network that can't be
accessed directly from
the machine Rancid is on, but can be accessed
from a gateway device,
here's the steps to reach that remote router.

In .cloginrc:

   add method telnet
user your_gateway_router_username
password {your_gateway_router_password}
   add method {usercmd}
   add user your_remote_switch_username
   add password {your_ remote_switch_password} {your_
   add usercmd
{clogin} {-noenable} {}
   add usercmd_chat {>} {telnet far-router\r} {User Access

clogin needs to be patched with Ed Ravin's changes here:

The {>} in the above example needs to be changed to match
whatever shows
up on the gateway system's prompt.
