Hi Michael,
for second issue (hlogin timeout), I'd run " expect -d /path/to/rancid/hlogin DEVICE" just to see when it hungs.
First try only like this, and then trying tu run a command.
Whe trying to connect, do you get any prompt (spawn xxxx, user, login, etc)  ??

i didnt see a prompt for a password, so it'd seem that the key is working

Isn't the "add user..." and "add password..." used for logging in...?
In my mind I should be able to remove the "add passsword..." line - but when I do - I tells me "no password in .cloginrc" or similar (not at work currently... so can't give you the specific error...)

i dont like that it didn't echo the \r response to "press any...".  but,
see autoenable in cloginrc(5).

No me either...:-) ! - is it possible from my strace to see where it goes wrong, or can I run a specific command for better troubleshooting ?
Will take a look at cloginrc(5) tomorrow at work...

likely all optional config files and libraries or just the sequential search
of the path with which the linker is configured.

Ok, so you don't think that this is causing me my problems ?

Thanks in advance :-) !
