Hi All,


I'm having troubles with hlogin and the HP 5300/5400/3500 series.


I've applied the patch that I found in the mailinglist from last january
2008 to hlogin.in, but it still isn't working.


when I do:  /usr/local/rancid/bin/hlogin -noenable -c "show version"  I go
throug the username and password promt, But it hangs on the normal  prompt,
and after a few seconds I get a timeout error.


Here is the output:


[rancid@ infra10 ~]$ /usr/local/rancid/bin/hlogin -noenable -c "show
version; exit"

spawn hpuifilter -- telnet

Error: TIMEOUT reached


I think it's because the no paging option does not work. Any input on this
problem ?
