Because the login process is similar enough to match the regexps?
Actually, for most of my F kit, the login prompt is:
Please Enter Login Name:
and that doesn't match with the clogin I have. However, I have one device
that happens to be just protected with a password rather than a
spawn telnet ip.ad.re.ss
Won't send login name and/or authentication information.
Connected to ip.ad.re.ss
Escape character is '^]'.
User Access Verification
Please Enter Password:
User login successful.
so in at least that circumstance, they are similar enough. Of course it
all breaks if rancid starts sending cisco-esque commands rather than
clogin itself works with quite a lot of stuff that roughly looks
cisco-ish, as they all tend to have a Username/Password prompt that
matches the fairly generous clogin regexp, and tend to have a CLI prompt
that ends with '>'. It all goes wrong afterwards ...
(I do think it a source of confusion for the newcomer that 'rancid' the
project now supports many types of device, but while in v2 the Cisco login
script is clogin, the Cisco command script is not crancid, but just plain
rancid - all the rest have a matching prefix for the *login and *rancid
