BIG-IP 11.5-

Version 2

    Dear Thwacksters,


    With help from a client who allowed me to used a F5 Big IP with version 11.5 we were able to download configs from the devices.  Via use of the bash shell we use a cat command to download the bigip.conf file. NOTE you do have to create a connection profile that has enable used but do not put an enable password.  The device template requires that the enable command is the word bash so it can accept the cat command.
