Need some input here. I am working in a network environment in which we have been using a Unix/Linux proprietary software product for network management. Historically, we have used the terminal emulator built into the software with which to load configs. Now, a newly formed "group" has been tasked with writing configurations, and is telling the community that we must cease using terminal emulation and start using TFTP because ""terminal emulation is unreliable and does not ensure data integrity" We've been using T-E since the year 2000 and now it is a problem. Also, apparently something has changed in the SNMP string written into the software that is no longer compatible with monitoring devices loaded with these new configs. Sounds like a bunch of Hooey to me. Can anyone give me some insight here? It sounds like the config group is trying to snow folks.
