Thanks a lot Ajay!

honestly i was hoping to find a cisco config convertor but no luck in this. My problem is that i have never worked with Nortel and ACE [at least at this level] so i will have to learn them both now.

I will use the links you have provided and hopefully i will find the light at the of the tunnel

Thank you again.
