that's nice to hear. and did i mention that it does not require clear text
router passwords to be stored in the file system like some tools i know of?

re: hard to port. well, the folks here who write that kind of code are
periodically available and if i could find more companies like genuity
who are willing to fund work like rtrmon and vulture (which means: isp
tools which help everybody but are not competitive advantages and which
can therefore be freely redistributable even though someone had to pay
to implement them) i would certainly have had someone port rtrmon to,
say, solaris and NT by now.
