Converting config backups to readable data

Mon Dec 19, 2011 10:20 am

Hi,

My RouterOS box became unreachable via the shell. (I can login, but don't get a command prompt.) I do have a backup of the config, but that seems to be binary data. Is there any known way to convert that to a readable config?

Mikrotik support has let me know that you can't convert backup files to a readable config. What a sucky and useless feature, this backup.
