Dealing with an old Rancid installation

Your new device is not supported by your current rancid install?  There is usually a solution. Get the * and * files from the github repo ( Put them in the bin directory of your rancid install, rename them to remove the .in at the end chown rancid.rancid and chmod +x to these files Make sure you make the mapping in bin/rancid-fe so that the vendor is known and rancid knows which rancid script use for this vendor Edit the *rancid file to set the perl path at the top Edit the *login file to set the expect path at the top Configure your .clogin for your device Add your device to router.db Test with rancid-run -r Check the logs
