hi soulja, thanks for that as this is what i was going to add to my dest1 & dest2 on other thread.

one thing i have never really understood is when i see the following but see (key 1 & key 2) for example  ?

key chain michael
key 1
key 2
key-string 234

The above should have a key string for each key id.

I believe when you have one switch configured with multiple keyid and strings, the other switch can be configured with either of the key strings.
