I faced a login issue when executing configuration backup for Extreme switch via TELNET.  I searched many post on internet but seems no solution for it.  May I know whether rancid is only work via SSH for Extreme switch?  Thanks.

-sh-3.00$ /usr/local/rancid/bin/clogin -f /usr/local/rancid/.cloginrc exswitch
spawn telnet exswitch
Connected to exswitch (
Escape character is '^]'.

telnet session telnet0 on /dev/ptyb0
