[rancid] Cisco connect through multiple devices?

Why can't you just connect the management Ethernet cable for switch1-3 up to a network that is reachable by rancid host?
That's the best solution.

I need to tell RANCID that it can access and manage X internal ip's through the router Y. Both X ips are cisco managed switches/routers and Y is a cisco router as well.
I've tried this solution after some searching : http://www.shrubbery.net/pipermail/rancid-discuss/2004-November/000905.html but apparently i can clogin but rancid-run gives me timeouts in the log.

I don't understand the question. Are you saying that you cannping ping cisco1, cisco2, or cisco3 through gateway? You don't have routing enabled?

Hello. I am in a situation.
I need RANCID to get the router information through another router. Both are cisco, both are telnet-able, both are managed.
Mainly, it's something like this :
Rancid Server --> Gateway Router -> Cisco switch1
                                                               -> Cisco switch2
                                                               -> Cisco switch3
How could this be implemented? A custom wrapper with a script?

Any help will be very appreciated ! :D
