Cannot agree more.  It's a major drawback even with a support contract.
I often use Google to search for particular features, bugs, workarounds
or whatever, limiting the scope to  This naturally
doesn't work with those who hide their docs.  And the site internal
search engines are usually a bad joke at best.

Regarding Foundry, I remember they used to have public docs several
years ago.  But all of a sudden it was closed. Around 2003 maybe?

Nowadays, Huawei is on top of my "oh i hate that web site" list. No
useful public content whatsoever.  Don't understand why they even bother
putting up a web server.

I appreciate that there still are serious vendors like Cisco and
Juniper who don't mind making their docs public. Thanks guys!
