[rancid] Re: Download configs from one router through another

Ed, thanks a lot for your patch. I got it working. Is there a way
though, to use wildcards with the usercmd_chat?

For instance, we log into a gateway router using a public IP address. We
then specify a method to reach the internal routers using usercmd. All
of the internal routers, let's say, are on the network. 

Is there a way to add a universal method that would use the
network as a wildcard (ie 10.0.0.*) and then could we put in a {*} or
something in the usercmd_chat so that any prompt is matched?

This would save us from adding dozens of separate .cloginrc commands for
the internal routers.

I'm not 100% happy with the way this patch works - it works fine if
the bastion host is a device other than the kind you are trying to
access.  But if you are trying to access a Cisco from another Cisco,
you need to jump through some hoops (like putting in a unique prompt
or unique banner on one or both of them) to help the main clogin
figure out when the second clogin has finished the "out of band"
