ConfGen Tool

ConfGen is a light weight application for populating values in to a template configuration file. It is based around the .net framework3.5 and this needs to be installed proir to running the application.

It is not specifice to any one manafacture or device, and will work with any text based configuration. It is aimed around producing high volumes of repeatable configurations as seen in the change managment service. It is still in early development stages and is one of three seperate tools I am working on. These tools will eventulay become tools to automate the Creation, Population and Deployment of configurations across a wide varity of devices.
