Sonicwall - add more than one forbidden domain at a time

We have a TSR report from an old sonicwall. On this there are 100+ forbidden domains under the custom list of the CFS.  We now have a new sonicwall and want to load all those domains back in, but it is taking 30-40 seconds per domain.  Is there a way to import all of these at once?
New sonicwall is a NSA 240.
Thanks

Not that I'm aware of, I'm afraid.

A tool to port subsets of configs between systems might be useful. It was deemed too fiddly but with the introduction of things like Content Filtering, Application Firewall, etc. the number of things you build up in lists has grown massivly, and those lists OUGHT to be individually import/exportable, IMHO.

But at present they're not.

Realizing that this is an OLD post...but I recently found out that the interface for the newer SonicWalls runs MUCH faster in Google Chrome then in IE.

Working on our NSA 2400 was a pain with IE...delays, pauses, hesitations for every single change; one of my techs was testing Chrome for another purpose and discovered that navigating through the SonicWall in Chrome is VERY FAST.

i later realized it was taking 30-40 seconds because it was not connected to the internet.  When it had a live internet connection it would only take about 3 seconds.

Just curious...did you have to enable CFS on your unit to add the addresses?  We're trying to add a few forbidden domains to our 2400 and for the life of me I can't find where to plug them in without CFS.  On our old Pro230 it was separate from CFS.

Thanks in advance.
