I cannot telnet into my devices but SSH works with the same username and password. When I ran clogin device name. I got the following error
clogin error: Error: Check your passwd

This is in my .clogin

add user * username
add password * {password}
add method * {telnet} {ssh}

The devices which have ssh enabled can login fine but the devices with telnet I am not able to login. The screen stops at username.
spawn telnet x.x.x.x
Trying x.x.x.x
Connected to x.x.x.x
Escape character is '^]'.


I was initially polling using IP address. I have changed that to adding device names in host file and updated the router.db with the host file. But now I am unable to login or retrieve config from the devices using rancid.
