[rancid] Trying to Backup Juniper SRX Firewall

I have configured RANCID to backup my Cisco switches.

using these commands:

/usr/libexec/rancid/clogin -c 'write term' x.x.x.45 > 45.cfg
/usr/libexec/rancid/clogin -c 'write term' x.x.x..41 > 41.cfg

This works as designed

I have a Juniper SRX-210 firewall that I want to backup.

I am using this command to backup the config:

/usr/libexec/rancid/clogin -c 'set cli screen-length 0;show configuration'
x.x.x.200 > 200.cfg

I think that the problem is that the prompt is not recognized and the
commands are not executed after login:

[rancid at tools rancid]$ /usr/libexec/rancid/clogin -c 'set cli screen-length
0;show configuration' x.x.x.200
spawn ssh -c 3des -x -l root x.x.x.200

Error: TIMEOUT reached

The rancid logs for the firewall are empty

Does anyone have any words of wisdom to resolve?
