Hi Lee,

Thanks for the suggestion.
I have updated the : to a : and got a little bit further.
I can test that all of my devices are accesible by running bin/clogin but when I run bin/rancid-run no configurations appear
in /usr/local/rancid/var/logs.
Running it manually does not produce any errors. I simply get the following:

starting: Thu 9 Feb 10:01:59 GMT 2017

cvs commit: Examining .
cvs commit: Examining configs

ending: Thu 9 Feb 10:01:59 GMT 2017

I feel I have missed something very important. Can you give me any ideas?
