Hi,

I need a batch file or script which automatically logs into a Cisco PIX firewall, executes the "show access-lists" command, and then captures the results in csv/excel format so I can read/sort the hit count data easily.

I have no idea where to start on this, so any help would be greatly appreciated!

Many thanks,
PJRimmer.

You can use Telnet Scripting Tool.

Create your own script which will login to router and save the output in a text file.

Expect is a great tool for such things. Not just the 'show' command but can also do a lot of things. Learning expect is also simple since it uses less stuff to learn.

Cheers,
Rajesh

Kiwi Cat tools, free for up to 5 devices, http://www.kiwisyslog.com/cattools2.htm can be setup to run as a service, gather configs, or run scripted commands, e-mail or save results, etc.  Great for managing  a bunch of systems and maintaining change control on them.  Would work for what you are looking for.

Hi Sorenson,

I downloaded Kiwi Cat tools which seems to do the trick, however the captured output has in complete lines and repeated sections. Have you seen this before?
