VG248 Backup and restore

Unanswered Question
Jun 13th, 2007


Does anyone know if a VG248 config can be copied to a laptop and then restored ?

The VF224 is not a problem as it is similar to a router with a CLI but I cannot see a way of doing this on a VG248

Any ideas ?


I have this problem too.

) ftp into the vg248

2) type get user.cfg once you are in there.

3) change the name to something else when on your pc, say to olduser.cfg

Do a "more user.cfg" or "more olduser.cfg" to verify that the config has been pulled


4) ftp to the new vg248

5) type put olduser.cfg user.cfg.

Or you can Go to Diagnostics --> Show configuration and backup

WOW! I never knew that.

Is this a supported way to backup/restore a VG248?

I also see a user.cfg.xml file. What's that for? Is that created from the cfg file on bootup?
