This document describes how to create a configuration backup of a LANCOM R&S®Unified Firewall and how the backup can be imported afterwards.

It is not possible to create a configuration backup when using a test license.


  • LANCOM R&S®Unified Firewall with LCOS.FX version 10.3 or later
  • Activated Basic Licence or Full Licence.
  • Web browser for configuring the Unified Firewall.

    The following browsers are supported:
    • Google Chrome
    • Chromium
    • Mozilla Firefox


1) Creating a configuration backup:

1.1) Connect to the configuration interface of the Unified Firewall and navigate to Firewall → Backup → Export.

1.2) Enter an Encryption Password and confirm it. Click on Export afterwards.

The Encryption Password has to be entered when importing the configuration. 

A configuration backup is always downward compatible but not upward compatible. Thus a configuration backup which has been saved with LCOS FX 10.3 can be uploaded into a Unified Firewall with LCOS FX 10.4 but not the other way around.

2) Importing the configuration backup:

2.1) Go to the menu Firewall → Backup → Import.

2.2) Select the configuration backup created in step 1 as Backup File and enter the Encryption Password entered in step 1.2. Click Import afterwards.
