I am upgrading my firewall in the next few days, with this upgrade I will need to change some routes on my Procurve.  I unfortunately do not know much about the switch, it was put in by a consultant and has been working great.  

I can do basic stuff, but this just makes me nervous, I need to make sure I know how to do the following any help is appreciated.

- Backup the config (Obvious reason)
- Currently the default route of the switch for I think all vlans is, I need to change this to

I also will eventually need to change all the routes from to our new there are a few and one in the ACL which needs to be changed.  I just don't want to mess anything up.  This is all just internal IP's so I don't have a problem posting the config it is very small. hpconfig.txt

    ip route
    ip route
    ip route
    Now remove old routes
    no ip route
    no ip route
    no ip route

    Now edit that ACL -- obviously from config mode

    ip access-list extended "Guest
    no 25
    25 permit ip
