Why not just ftp them to the linux box?  OR better yet, just telnet into the
linux box and create the cfg files?

Hi all,

I import mrtg.cfg files from my NT server to my Linux box using wget.  My
problem is the way the files come accross doesn't seem to gel with Linux
because MRTG gives this error;

root at root:/tmp/cfg# perl /usr/local/mrtg/bin/mrtg mrtg.cfg
) in CFG file (mrtg.cfg)  does not make sense
root at root:/tmp/cfg# 

I use these exact same config files on my NT box to graph.  My guess is that
it has something to do with word wrapping, because sometimes i'll get a file
with a ^M at the end of every line or the file has big spaces between the
lines after an import.  Also when I copy and paste a config file from NT
into Linux using VI and SSH it works great. Is there a way I can get MRTG to
ingnore these ^M's and spaces?

Any ideas?  My goal is to create the config files using my NT box and
getting my Linux box to import them periodically using wget and running mrtg
from Linux.
