Download config from a SonicWAVE AP?

LitBobOnLitBobOn Newbie ✭

Hi, My SonicWAVE are managed by local device. Is there a feature in the GUI to download the config like you see in the terminal view? I want to spot check some settings like radius and in the GUI you have to jump through numerous screens.

Alternatively is there a command to easily capture the config to a txt file via CLI?

    You can use "export" command for downloading the configuration.


    export current-config { cli | exp } { ftp | scp }


    export current-config cli ftp ftp://user:password@servername/sw-prodname-buildversion-ecli.txt

    export current-config cli scp scp://user@server/sw-prodname-buildversion-ecli.txt

    Hi @Ajishlal

    This is great. When I tried using the prompts, i.e. tab, for "export" it didn't show me any examples. One of the only commands which had no suggestions for variables.

    Do you have a complete list of CLI commands?

    Thank you,

    @LitBobOn - Here's the latest version:

    Your "export" command is on page 1019 (of 2274) - good luck!

    Hi @Larry,

    Thanks for this. This guide does not appear to cover SonicWAVE but there may be some crossover.

    @LitBobOn there doesn't appear to be any separate documentation for SonicWave devices. That's because half the SW engineering world believes them to be controlled via Wireless Network Manager (WNM) - so you don't need any, and the other half believes they are controlled by the firewall - so you don't need any.

    Boundless schizophrenic behavior...
