ciscobackup project is a utility script for secure backup of Cisco IOS routers via SSH.
Typing "make install" will install ciscobackup into
/usr/local hierarchy. For CPAN installation to work (see below), you will need to run it as root.
ciscobackup depends on Net::SSH::Perl module. The Makefile will try to install the module automatically. Installation can take a lot of time because Net::SSH::Perl depends on a lot of other modules, which will take time to download and have time consuming tests.
If installatin fails, your only choice is to try to install from CPAN yourself, you can start CPAN shell by issuing "perl -MCPAN -e shell" command. Note that unless Math::BigInt::GMP is installed beforehand, Crypt::DH can take forever to complete.
After installation, manual can be found by typing "man ciscobackup".
Default username and password can be changed easily by editing the script.
