Thank you Ken! that looks like it worked. Now just getting cp: cannot stat `/home/cisco/bkup/storage/LATEST/*': No such file or directory
Can't open /home/cisco/bkup/RTR_LIST file at backup.pl line 29.
This is no doubt because I have no file for it to run across so I can bang away at this...your explanation on the /Q and /E was right on the money and I tried your alt format and it runs clean on checks...thanks again for looking at it.
After consideration I still think this is wrong way for me to go. I have stuff that won't download from snmp or mibs so I am going to search for a good perl/expect combo that I can use to telnet in get the prompts and send the downloads to a tftp server that i kick on and off
Thank you both for the assist
