Exporting Sonicwall rule set to text file

Does anyone know of a way to export only the Sonicwall access rules to a text file?

I need this for an audit and compliance report.  I tried viewpoint and other firewall log analyzers but nothing will report on all active rules.

I need to show all active rules and open ports associated with each rule.

I am running a PRO 3060 with OS Enhanced

you could have generated a TSR directly from the sonicwall which would have given you that information as well.

I tried using the TSR report in but it seems very time consuming to extract the information I need and generate a report from it.  Do you have any suggestions when extracting information from the TSR report?

I was originally opening the TSR report in Notepad but when I open it in WordPad or Microsoft Word it's much easier to get the information I need.  Thank you

Sorry...been away from my computer.  Yes, there is a lot of information there and can be a challenge to extract what you need.  Also, as you've found, notepad is not the best for viewing the TSR.

Glad it's working for you.
