Print Running config files from several components to one file


   I am a systems engineer and I am looking for some help with my current network setup. I am in need of a program that I can give the IP addresses of my cisco components (PBR's, Switches, so on) and it will go into them, pull the running config files, and print them to one text file. Recently I have been asked to produce weekly reports in which I have to show the configuration, and make notes of any changes that have been made, so any program that can do that too would also be helpful. Previously, I have been using Cat-Tools to do this, but it is a freeware program and has expired. Additionally, my customer is very picky about what goes on the system, and does not trust freeware programs. Does cisco have some software (maybe incorporated in a software bundle like wireshark) that can do this for me? If not, what program do people recommend? Also, the program has to be done on a Windows machine.

Thank you,

Cisco Employee
