Agreed.  I should have qualified my post.  Having a single cfg file with
multiple targets in it makes it considerably difficult.

I suppose one could pen a perl script to parse the cfg file for the word
target and (assuming you used the IP address in the target), parse it out
and use it for the "are you there?" part of the pre-scan test.

Makes a good case for using a single cfg file per target I suppose.

	I like the idea.  It would certainly save me some processing time if
	target was not available.  Would be fairly easy to implement for my
	configuration cause I have a cfg for each target.  Test the target
once for
	availability and if ok then start to query the rest of the objects
in the
	cfg file.  In this instance then you would be able to save on
	traffic as well as time becasue you would not have to wait for the
	timeout for each object.
	Dont know how you would do it for a single config that has objects
	mulitple targets though.
