When trying to use hlogin I get timeouts when trying to login to the
enable prompt. I thought I was running version 2.3.2a10 but I guess my
upgrade didn't work as expected.


-bash-3.2$ hlogin HP5308-B6-1.pelco.org


spawn hpuifilter -- ssh -c 3des -x -l user hp5308-b6-1.pelco.org

Switch - DO NOT LOGIN.
