I'm attempting to set up the dell extension found at

Everything seems to work fine when logging in with dlogin:

$ sudo -u www /opt/local/libexec/rancid/dlogin -autoenable -u Engineer -p
<snip> -c "show version"
spawn telnet
Connected to
Escape character is '^]'.
04-Jun-2009 02:12:41 %MSCM-I-NEWTERM: New TELNET connection from
User Name:Engineer

TW-G-6024-1#  show version
SW version ( date  21-Nov-2003 time  09:58:38 )
Boot version ( date  13-Aug-2003 time  15:28:31 )
HW version    00.01.64
TW-G-6024-1#eConnection closed by foreign host.

However, when I set up cloginrc:

add autoenable 10.13.* 1
add method 10.13.* telnet
add password 10.13.* Engineer <snip>

and router.db:

It doesn't seem to work when running rancid manually:

$ sudo -u www /opt/local/bin/rancid-run GROUP -r

Trying to get all of the configs.
opened network stream from if () at
/opt/local/libexec/rancid/drancid line 266.
found_end = 0, clean_run = 0 dlogin error: Error: Connection closed (telnet): missed cmd(s): show version,show running-config,show vlan End of run not found

The error in the log isn't really revealing.

I installed rancid from macports, this is in the header of rancid-run:

## $Id: rancid-run.in,v 1.30 2004/03/12 23:17:28 heas Exp $

I really appreciate any support/ideas/help anyone can offer to help figure
this out.
