Firmware Suggestion

It would be useful, at least to me, to be able to export the Access Control list as a table. To have an "editable" list of equipment with corresponding IP addresses and their MAC addresses would be useful.

   Copy+paste from the Web page?  Have you looked at the ".cfg" file
produced by (on my D7000) ADVANCED > Administration > Backup Settings:
Backup Settings?  Perhaps you can extract what you want from that file
(unsightly as it may be).

Re: Firmware Suggestion

Copy and paste the web page - Duh... simple and perfect. Thanks. I had PDF'd a screenshot and was trying to get Acrobat to OCR it into something editable. Talk about the long way. It would only OCR about 90% and the rest was junk. Thanks.

   Or, if using a browser is ok, then save the HTML, and try to extract
the useful data from that.  Perhaps Wget could be persuaded to fetch the
page, if you can get it past the authentication.  Some scripting would
be needed to extract the useful data, no doubt.  But, for a one-timer,
copy+paste can be pretty handy.

   As usual, many things are possible, and there's seldom only one
solution to a problem in this neighborhood.
