Let's please keep the discussion on-list so that others may participate.  Thanks.

I believe Blue Coat packetshapers were an acquisition from Packeteer.  I do not think RANCID supports them out of the box, but you may have luck searching for "rancid packeteer" instead of "rancid bluecoat" to see if someone else has gotten them to work.



It seems there was discussion on this very list in 2004 and 2007:
