I use a small program called disco that sends an SNMP write request to the router to initiate a 'write net' then receives the file via tftp. It's available at http://web.mit.edu/ktools/ and works for at least linux and solaris. --- I've seen lots of homegrown scripts like the above. A lot of our customers use element managers such as CiscoWorks. The nice thing about the element managers is that they will flag any changes that might have been made and not recorded. Irwin
