[rancid] Update configs by an external means

Rather than using a file that's been transferred onto the system, you may
be able to have RANCID log in via SSH and run "config\rshow current-config"
to dump the config. I'm guessing that there's some other commands that may
be useful, but "show current-config" from config mode is how I typically
get config copies from Sonicwall firewalls when I'm doing firewall
migrations for my customers.
