yeah, we use external scripts for different access servers a lot. I was
just trying to avoid using one, as I ASSUMED (notice the assume) that MRTG
would return these guys quicker if NOT having to call an external
script. Maybe I'm wrong on that, but speed is an issue as we already have
200+ access servers running on this MRTG server...
Thanks for the help...
