I'm looking to do the same thing you are. We have several TA5000s I'd
like to version using Rancid. There is not an "adtran" module that I can
see, so I just set them as Cisco and it works 90%. The first time it
fails trying to run a bunch of Cisco specific commands, but it does get
the config which is all I care about.

I wish there was a way to say JUST get the config, since that would work
for most platforms. If you find any more information on that TA5000 let
me know, maybe between the two of us we can get it working?
