Whether you've got a dozen big Cisco routers to
configure, or 100 renegade WiFi access points to lock down, it'll go
faster with ClipMate at your side.
ClipMate can help in several ways. As a
Clipboard Extender, it allows you to quickly gather data from
devices that you want to clone. It also lets you record values
as a backup, in case you need to roll back quickly. ClipMate's
PowerPaste is great for pasting a series of values into a
configuration screen. And ClipMate can record screen captures
too - either a window, or a selectable area. Just copy them,
and they're recorded in ClipMate for later review, printing, etc.
ClipMate's PowerPaste can also work by
"exploding" data. Let's say that you have a list of MAC
addresses that need to be entered one at a time into a configuration
web page. Exploding PowerPaste will break them up, and feed
them to the clipboard one at a time. Just paste, paste, paste.
Maybe you have to enter individual octets into a form? No problem -
Exploding PowerPaste can break data up by dots, commas, tabs,
line-breaks, or any character that you need. Here is a flash
demo "viewlet" of PowerPaste in action - it's not network-admin
specific, but imagine it chewing through your data, as you watch the
Record your Tracks
Have you ever said "oh-oh", and wished that you
had a copy of what you just over-wrote? Now you can copy
anything to the clipboard, and let ClipMate record it for you.
Text or Screen Grabs, ClipMate can record what you don't have time
to write down - but should.
Save and Re-Use
You can store useful scripts and configs in
permanent "collections" for later re-use. ClipMate's databases
can be backed up to a ZIP file, so that you can take your data with
you. You can also print hardcopies.
Share on the network
You can share ClipMate databases on the network,
allowing teams of people to access and share the same data (and you
can have your own, local data stored separately!)
"I just got through configuring a Cisco 2600
series router and thanks to ClipMate I probably shaved 2 hours off
the project. I'll actually make it home on time, today. I don't know
how I lived without it especially in this industry. "

We asked Brian what sort of tasks he uses
ClipMate for, and received this reply:
"When I'm given a work-order to troubleshoot or
re-configure a router I basically get an email with what needs to be
changed. Where your tool comes into play is when I start adding or
removing configs from the router. ClipMate becomes a backup,
basically. When I am given a task to do a series of routers in a day
ClipMate saves me an unbelievable amount of time especially when all
the configs are the same with the exception of the IP addresses. I
copy the first router config and apply it to the rest of the router
I have to do with minimal change. I did 8 today and if I didn't use
ClipMate I would have accomplished 5 at the most. Other techs and
management think I'm some sort of Router God "LOL" It's all in the
tools you use on the job! ;-) "
