The root user is most likely because clogin is being executed as the root user, ie: you're logged in as root when you try to clogin into your router.

Hope this helps,

When I try to connect to my device using /home/rancid/bin/clogin, this 
is what I get:

spawn ssh -c 3des -x -l root
root at's password:

But, there is no root user written in my .cloginrc file.

Where does this root user should come from?
