CMX-auto-test

This ia a quick tool that can be used to verify POST data coming from Meraki's CMX.

Esentially this server can be used to verify POSTs are being sent out from a network, along with which API version is being sent.

The server is able to dynamically add and remove Push URLs via a web GUI, making life a little easier.
