What is ForEachBox?
ForEachBox is a scripting and automation tool for various
Cisco devices. It supports the command line interface of the Cisco Nexus,
IOS and ASA series. It is implemented as a Java GUI and requires the Plink
tool that is included with PuTTY.

ForEachBox is packed as a Java JAR file, which can be started by either double clicking
it in the file browser or by running the command "java -jar foreachbox.jar". Also available
is a Windows executeable, which is basically a wrapper and also sets some optimized
parameters for the Java VM. You need the JRE 1.4 or later installed on your machine to run it.
ForEachBox does not use a setup; just copy the file ForEachBox.jar to a working directory.
All generated logging and projects files are also stored in this directory by default.
ForEachBox is an automation tool, which can change settings of many devices at one click. Special care should be taken using this software and the test option be considered.

This software is provides as-is, use at your own risk.
The following is the legal warning quote from the PuTTY web site
LEGAL WARNING: Use of PuTTY, PSCP, PSFTP and Plink is illegal in countries where
encryption is outlawed. I believe it is legal to use PuTTY, PSCP, PSFTP and Plink
in England and Wales and in many other countries, but I am not a lawyer and so if
in doubt you should seek legal advice before downloading it. You may find this site
useful (it's a survey of cryptography laws in many countries) but I can't vouch for its correctness.
