Hi again.

I've tested the "nortel" side of your scripts and it works very well !!
thanks a lot.

Here is the list of tested hardware :

* Avaya 4548 (POE and non-POE) Software version = v5.6.1.053

* Avaya 5510/5530 : Software version = v6.2.5.027 and Software version = 

* Avaya 5650 : Software version = v6.2.5.027

4548 needs : 'banner disabled' command
5xxx needs : 'banner disabled' and 'cmd-interface cli' commands

I've noticed two issues :

1/ As you mentionned, there is a "logout" in the config file
2/ the nortellogin script tries to log in 2 or 3 times in the same 
connection, I didn't find out why.

I'll try to find out for the 2 issues.

Hope the scripts will be added in future version of rancid.
