ip_address_device_1:Device Name:snmp_password:device_password
ip_address_device_2:Device Name:snmp_password:device_password
ip_address_device_3:Device Name:snmp_password:device_password
ip_address_device_4:Device Name:snmp_password:device_password
ip_address_device_5:Device Name:snmp_password:device_password

Where:

ip_address_device_X - IP Address of the device
Device Name - Any name you choose to be shown in the program dialog next to the IP Address
snmp_password - SNMP Password used for SNMP management of your OSBRiDGE device (default SNMP password is public)
device_password - Password you use for device management (ie. to log into the web interface)

Sample configuration file may look as this:

192.168.1.11:test2:public:public
192.168.1.12:test1:public:public

and can be downloaded from here: devices.dlst (use "save file as" option in your web browser).

One configuration file should contain configuration for only one device type.

After pressing the "START" button the program starts operating and upgrading the devices one by one. Please note tha depending on your configuration file and number of devices being upgraded this may take a while.
