Hi guys ....

i am not Cisco trained and am tired of not being able to administer our Cisco 2911 Firewall. With this in mind i am changing to a Sonicwall NSA 2400, which has a much more user friendly interface if you aren't Cisco CLI trained.

This is for a small office with less than 60 users, with 1 router and 1 firewall.
We have a few VPNs set up, and some fairly basic rules.

I'm after some advice and\or best practices for a smooth changeover. Is there a way of importing the Cisco running config, or am i best building the NSA 2400 from the ground up? Are there any pitfalls i need to look out for?

Please don't advise me against the NSA 2400, the purchase has already been made, hehe.
