If you're coming at this from a Cisco background, almost certainly you'd find the 'net' command (it's called 'NCLU' in Cumulus parlance) to be the best route in. It will provide tab completion, and commit/abort functionality. It works remarkably well. The good news is that it'll also give you nice, repeatable templates for whatever automation you decide to achieve. This will save you from those 'server guys' editing text files thinking it's identical to Debian config (hint: it isn't, it's much improved.) -- Tom Hill Network Manager Bytemark Limited http://www.bytemark.co.uk/ tel. +44 1904 890 890
