I'm evaluating whether to get a SonicWall TZ or a comparable Fortinet firewall. One thing i can't find but would really like to have is the ability to automate backing up the firewall configuration.
Is there a (preferably simple) way to fetch the running configuration from a SonicWall using scriptable command line-fu, utilising secure transport like ssh or scp?
Also, can the retrieved file be edited and uploaded to a TZ to reconfigure the firewall?
Both tricks seem to be doable on a Fortinet firewall.
