Download the Configuration File

From Fireware Web UI, you can download your Firebox configuration to a compressed file. This can be useful if you want to open the same configuration file in Policy Manager but are unable to connect to the Firebox from Policy Manager. This can also be useful if you want to send your configuration file to a WatchGuard technical support representative.

  1. Select System > Configuration File.
    The Configuration File page appears.
  2. Click Download the Configuration File.
    The Select location for download dialog box appears.
  3. Select a location to save the configuration file.

The configuration file is saved in a compressed (.GZ) file format. Before you can use this file with Policy Manager, you must use a utility such as Winzip or 7-zip to extract the file to a location on your computer.
