Thank you Tim.  I did purchase your Max Capture series last week Friday and started it yesterday.  So far it is great material!  I look forward to the rest, especially the fw monitor section.

This is an awesome tool to make trouble shooting a little easier.  I added the last "fi;" then ran the script and got the following error. I admit I am running this in an old R77.20.87 (990173120) CP-730 device.

bash: tput: command not found
Add host IPs bash: tput: command not found
(leave empty for any): 

I ran the script using the defaults and it did run with the error.  Is this a shell issue?

Otherwise a great tool Thanks for taking the time to put this code together.

This tool wasn't built for SMB appliances that run on Gaia Embedded OS.
tput and several other commands / parameters used by this one-liner are only available on standard Gaia.

It's working as designed and documented. Neither SMB appliances nor the new -F syntax is supported yet.
