How can I decrypt elements of the config file?
I have an old backup file of a past configuration. There is a section of the backup file that contains Allowed IP's. We are configuring a new PF server and would need that list of IP to be entered in this new configuration. When I review the backup I see the section in question but the IP's are in a custom file and the data seems compressed or encypted in some fashion. Is there a way to uncompress the custom data so it can be read?

Restore it to a test box and pull out what you need.
The custom data that you see in the config.xml file is in base_64 compressed format.
If you goto Diagnostics:Command Prompt in the GUI -
And in the PHP Execute Box type :
print base64_decode(" coded String ");
So you will need to view the config.xml file (or the Backup file) and look for the line with your coded string
and copy the "coded string" part … It will output the decoded string to the Screen.
Hope this helps!
$ cat - | base64 -d
Paste the encoded data and end with Ctrl-D (EOF).
