No, we cannot burn the backup to a cd image for restore, however, we can do a backup and rebuild on the unit.

The backup and restore process is documented in the upgrade guide fro R65 bud, that has a lot more info in it but the gist is as follows:

1.   run the upgrade_export tool on the old box, save the resulting file off the box
2.   Build a new box using the R65 CD
3.  Run the upgrade_import tool on the new box using the file created at 1

Hello Deimark,

I using the secureplatform gui to backup the configuration.

I then  using the restore (cli) option to restore the configuration.

I do not need to upgrade the box both boxes aready have a working configuratoin.

It is just that i am try to find a methed both box in sync.

I normally use ssh utility putty to telnet the config to the second box, but recently

putty was timing out frequenly during the restore process.

I needed an altenative method

Use FTP or SCP to copy the file across.

I prefer to have the backup available via an FTP serer and then use the CLI to pull the file via FTP.

If you use SSH, the session should not time out.

If there are time out issues due to other config, then use a console connection (serial) to pull the file via FTP,  this will not time out.

Later versions of putty have console abilities
