CMPC v1.5 In the Wild!

I'm happy to announce v1.5 is now released and available to download here. This version includes a number of enhancements and new packages. Here's some snippets from the release:

- Added support for CCO tree-style release listing.
- Removed restriction on number of runtime arguments.
- Added the following package options for notifications:
- Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers
- Cisco Wireless Control System
- Cisco ACS (Windows Version)
- Cisco VPN 3000 Concentrator
- Cisco VPN Client for Windows
- Cisco CSS 11500
- Cisco WAAS
- Added the ability for CMPC to check your current MARS apppliance version via SSH.



CONFIGURING CMPC TO CHECK MARS APPLIANCE VERSION
================================================
CMPC now has the ability to check your MARS appliance version via SSH. This is made possible by use of libraries from the SharpSSH project (http://sharpssh.sourceforge.net/). There is a bit of configuration to make this possible. First, make sure the following dlls from the releases zip file are in the CMPC running directory:

DiffieHellman.dll
Org.Mentalis.Security.dll
Tamir.SharpSSH.dll


Now you'll need to add the following lines to your config.xml file:
SEE RELEASE NOTES

The "mars_check_version" field should be set to "1" to enable the processing of your MARS appliance. Switch to "0" (or anything besides 1) to disable this feature). You'll also need to make sure your pnadmin password is encrypted in the XML file. Run CMPC like so to have it encrypt your password.

Example: "C:\>cmpc.exe --encryptpass "

Now when you run CMPC with the --ciscomars option, it will get the current software version of your MARS appliance and add that to the e-mail notification.

Enjoy this latest release and any comments or issues let me know.

Great tool, but recently I am having a problem with checking MARS. I issue the command and nothing gets returned, the other options work fine. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

My CCO user ID is my email address but CMPC states:
Unable to read "config.xml" file. Verify it exists and is formatted properly.
System.Xml.XmlException: The '@' character, hexadecimal value 0x40, cannot be included in a name. Line 3, position 15.

Recommendations?
