Help with export settings before factory reset?!


Well, simply put, Ive played a little bit too much with the device and need to perform a factory reset.

However, I would like to export the firewallsettings and DHCP reserve list before doing this.

What would be the best way to export / import these settings?

Thanks in advance.


Can only be done via an ssh file browser app, if you are selective to those 2 conf files only. each file is located in /etc/conf

Download those files from the device to another node and after factory reset upload them to the device (and reboot thereafter.

You might want to consider saving /etc/conf/network as well, unless that is considered messed up and requires the factory reset.

If the point is to preserve all config, I expect it’s sufficient to use the backup and restore buttons in Foris / Maintenance.
