How do I read a Sonicwall Configuration file it is encripted

I can export the configuration file, However the resultant text file is unreadable.  Example of a portion:

"YmxlR3Vlc3RTZXJ2aWNlc18wPTAmem9uZU9iak1heEd1ZXN0c18wPTAmem9uZU9iakJ5cGFzc0F1dGhfMD0wJnpvbmVPYmpCeXBhc3NBdXRoTWFjT2JqXzA9JnpvbmVPYmpEYXRFbmFibGVkXzA9MCZ6b25lT2JqSW50ZXJHdWVzdENvbW1fMD0wJnpvbmVPYmpCeXBhc3NBdl8wPTAmem9uZU9ialNtdHBSZWRpckVuYWJsZWRfMD0wJnpvbmVPYmpTbXRwUmVkaXJJUF8wPSZ6b25lT2JqV2xhbkRlbnlFbmFibGVfMD0wJnpvbmVPYmpXbGFuRGVueU5ldHdvcmtfMD0mem9uZU9ialdsYW5QYXNzRW5hYmxlXzA9MCZ6b25lT2JqV2xhblBhc3NOZXR3b3JrXzA9JnpvbmVPYmpDdXN0TG9naW5FbmFibGVfMD0wJnpvbmVPYmpDdXN0TG9naW5"
Is there a tool to read and edit this?

Login to the SonicWALL with Administrative rights and then navigate to Diagnostics.

If the top section is not showing the TSR options then click on Show TSR section in the top right.  Select what you want to report on and then click on Download Report.

The Lifecycle Approach to Managing Security Policy

Managing application connectivity and security policies can be achieved more effectively when following a framework that automates repeatable processes and ensures that the right activities are performed in the right order.

Depends whar you're trying to do.

The file you've exported is intended to be a "backed up" config that you can re-import should you lose the config, screw it up, or blow the hardware and need to movethe config to the replacement hardware.

It's not intended to be human-readable.

If you want a "hard copy" of the config that is human-readable, then as the lads above suggested, you should save or print the "Tech Support Report". This is many pages long but includes ALL the config, inluding VPN keys, routes, objects, etc, etc...

BUT the TSR is NOT machine-readable, it can' t be re-imported to the box. If it was the only backup you had you would have to go through it page by page manually re-entering all the data.

So - you should probably make BOTH, and remember to update them both any time you make a config change that you decide to keep.

(This applies to all models of Sonicwall firewall from TZ150 to Pro, Std and Enh firmware).

all three answers were correct, mine was just more detailed becauas I decided NOT to assume I knew what you were tryign to do.

But if you had SAID what you were trying to do in the question I'm sure all three of us would've gone straight to the detail you needed! :-)
