Dear Friends,

I have a device which has cisco like command syntax and format.   I have
tried to copy cisco login/scripts and created it as new device type.

however i am getting problem in fetching configuration with it. Its showing
following messages in logs

Getting missed routers: round 4.
testrouter: End of run not found
Error: TIMEOUT reached

On running in Debugg mode i get the below pasted output. Which shows that
there is issue with --MORE-- comming and requiring to press SPACE bar.

Another thing i noticed is that Cisco running-config Ends with the Keyword
"end" where as this device ends with exclimation mark with end like "!end"

Can someone tell me how can i fix it???
