Thank you so much Heasley for the reply.

Will there be any chance the patch will be integrated to 2.3.8 soon. I have few hundred routers that is accessible only through a gateway.

Thank you

clogin would need to be patched to accept usercmd.

there are one or two patches folks have sent to the list.  I'd like to pull
them into 3.0 final, but they're not integrated yet.
