    Hello @muetzekoeln

    Thank you for your question about the config file for the XGS1210-12 web-managed switch. While it is true that the config file may be unreadable without a dedicated application, the good news is that you can access and adjust all settings through the Web GUI that it offers an intuitive and user-friendly interface for managing your switch's configuration.  

    Could you please let us know what your specific reason is for wanting to read the config file directly? We may be able to suggest alternative solutions or tools that can help you achieve your goals. 

    Best Regards, 

    Nami

    Sorry for the gibberish. I was not able to enter proper text with my mobile…

    Yes I need human readable config files for archiving. This is a security rule on this site. Please give advice how to de-/encipher these config files.

    Hello @muetzekoeln

    We understand your request, and we would like to propose this idea in the Switch Idea section here.

    However it will take time for us to evaluate whether it can be added in the next firmware for XGS1210-12 or not. 

    Therefore, we would like to ask if you are in a hurry to read the config file. If so, could you please send us the config file via PM and we will help you transfer it to a readable file? 

    Best Regards, 

    Nami

    Thank you, but no. First, it would be more than one config file. Second, I expect the login password to be included in this file. Then there is no way send these files.
