Network configuration downloads

I want a tool to download network configurations for me if I specify an IP address. It can do using username/password or SNMP

I know about cat tools but you have to create a new profile for each device and keep repeating the username/password. This is cumbersome

Anything else? I really prefer tools that can be set up quickly - no bulky packages like ciscoworks please

    Both are very good.  But I am sure you can set something up with Cat tools to push the username and password everytime the request is made automatically.  That is if your used to using just cat tools.
