Hi, guys

Our client (a foreign telecoms company) requires us to write a module which will perform what looks like IP address provisioning on a Cisco 3800 series router; they are not prepared to pay for the Cisco java API so it looks like we're going to have to do it via Telnet.

Before I start, I'm trying to research any other possible cleaner configuration options. I've heard rumours that Cisco routers support JMX, but I can't find any useful documentation, and from what I can work out SNMP support is purely for monitoring.

Anyone have any experience doing this sort of stuff? I've got zero experience configuring routers bigger than my ADSL router at home
Any docs / sites / apocryphal stories / commiserations are welcome

thanks for your time
Jeremy
