sonicwall settings in a text file

Hope someone can help with this.
I need to export the sonicwall TZ170 Standard settings to a text file, so I can read it and keep it as back up. I know I can export the settings to .EXP file. that file can only be used to be imported back to a sonic wall router. it's not readable by humans.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can create a tech support report which is readable. Depends on the firmware how to create it.
For a newer model go to: 'System' - 'Diagnostics'. On the top of the screen you can create and download a .WRI file (wordpad).
