I need to get the objects and rulebase files from the firewall, so I can process them with odumper. Been so long I have forgot how, I have FTP access to the firewall but of course unable to change the working directory to $FWDIR/conf which is where the file are at.

Any ideas?

Hi,

Depending on your release, change the numbers after the capital R - this example is for R65:

$FWDIR =

/opt/CPsuite-R65/fw1

Don't think that's it, I can open $FWDIR/conf when connected with a serial connection, but not FTP

When in FTP mode, the FTP server has no idea of what any environment variables are bud.

I suspect that the FTP server has a specific home dir to get to rather than in the fill file system.

If possible, try using SCP or even WinSCP to copy the file off using SCP.

Either that or set up an ftp server somewhere on your network. Then connect on the serial connection and ftp the files off:

ftp <my_ftp_server_ip>
user xxx
pass xxx
cd /opt/CPsuite-R65/fw1/conf
put objects_5_0.C

etc etc
