good day everyone,

i have a sonicwall pro 4060 and i would like to know if there is anyway possible to export the settings of the firewall to a spreadsheet app like Excel. I would like to start looking at all the settings in there that have become so convoluted that the device is pretty tricky to manage now a days. any help on thi would be deeply appreciated.

You can export your configuration to the sonicwall .exp format, which is basically plaintext.  It requires a bit of cleanup to view everything properly, but it should work for what you need.


i will give it a shot and get back to you, thank you.
