How do I move an aliasconfig export file from one Cisco IronPort appliance to another IronPort appliance so that I can import it?

I'm trying to avoid re-typing my entire aliasconfig settings on my backup device.

This is the info from Ironport help under System Administration -> Configuration File
I would do it carefully because you can end up with a corrupt config file, in any case save the running config before doing anything else.

Use the Load Configuration interface to load new configuration information into the IronPort appliance. You can load information in one of two methods:
1. Placing information in the configuration directory on your appliance and uploading it. 2. Pasting configuration information directly into the space provided. In either method, you must include the following tags at the top of your configuration:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?> <!DOCTYPE config SYSTEM "config.dtd"> <config> ... your configuration information in valid XML </config>
You can import an entire configuration file or a complete and unique sub-section of the configuration file, as long as it contains the tags shown above.

On the first IronPort run :
aliasconfig export  <filename>

FTP to the first appliance and you will find the file you've created.  Download it, and then upload it into the same location on the second appliance

Then, on the second ironport run :
aliasconfig import <filename>

The other (much better!) option is to buy a Centralized Management license, and then any changed made on the first appliance will be automatically copied to the second.

When I FTP into the device, where would I find the exported configuration file and where do I put the file on the other device?
