    Functionality Request

      Some ideas for future development (ideas from Network Authority / ZipTie)

      • Web Interface that would support RADIUS or LDAP authentication
      • Ability to use both SSH and Telnet (instead of one or another). This is helpfull during config migrations from telnet to SSH
      • Provide reports across all devices supporting SSH and Telnet
      • Provide some inventory reports, ie total number of devices, broken up by vendor
      • Ability to compare current and previous configs within the user interface as well as receiving emails of changed configs

      Thanks

          Thanks for the post.  These are all excellent ideas, but some of these (e.g. web interface) may be out of scope for CatTools which is intended to be a desktop config management tool.

          The good news is we already have an enterprise-class solution that meets many of these requirements called Orion NCM.   If you have a chance, I'd recommend downloading the 30-day eval and seeing if this meets your needs.
