About firewall configuration files

Sophos Client Firewall enables you to export the firewall general settings and rules as a configuration file. You can use this feature to do the following:

  • Back up and restore your entire firewall configuration.
  • Save a general settings configuration and install it on multiple computers.
  • Create rules for applications on one computer and export them for use on other computers running the same set of applications.
  • Use the management console to merge configurations created on several different computers to create a policy that is valid for all computers on the network.
