Honestly, IMHO we are really looking for the proverbial "low hanging
fruit" of information. I suspect that not many are willing to dig
through the sysreport mountain of information. This forum is not really
a one stop, one call full fledged help company. But there is a company
or two that is... We tend to lead people toward solutions and not
directly provide solutions. Sometimes the journey is more valuable than
the destination...

Determining the proper way to connect and provide information is best
done by the person needing help. For example, the "auto" version would
need to mandate additional tools (wget/perl/ftp etc very likely) in
order to make a connection and send data. This does not even include
issues with invasive proxies (like mine). Next, there seems to be some
need to sanitize information prior to any auto transfer. Not that it
can't be done, but more like is it practical to do.
