how to Backup save/load SPA-3000 configurations using Backup Utility

This little utility is very handy for when you start playing around with the settings on you SPA-3000 (or SPA-2000). At first it is not all that intuitive so read the help file. Once you have it worked out, it is very easy to use and actually more intuitive that you first think. Here's what to do:
1. Download the program from The author adds the newest version at the bottom of the list, so take the last version available. If the dualarrow site is not live, download newsipurautilv2 (01-2007) from this site.

2. Put the exe file in a clean folder. It is a stand alone executable file that doesn't need to be installed. When it runs, it creates its own ini files etc, so you will want it in a folder of its own.
3. Double click to run the program. You will see the following screen
4. In the top left corner, there is an orange button that toggles between *Dragging* and *Moving* each time you click it. Click this button so it says *Moving*
5. Click on the SPA-3000 image in the bottom left corner, and drag it to the blue devices section, then release. You will be prompted to enter a name for the device. Do this once for each SPA device you have.

6. Then right click on the device image in the blue section and click Edit Details. You need to enter the IP address of the device.

7. Click on your SPA-3000 image in the bottom left corner again, and drop it in the Config area. When prompted, give it a name. You can create as many config files as you like. You should end up with something like this:

8. Click on the orange button in the left hand corner, and change it to read *Dragging*. Drag your device from the blue section and drop it on to one of your configuration files. This will copy the config from your SPA to the config backup.

That's it, it is backed up. Now you can drag the configuration file back onto your device whenever you want to reset the device configuration.

Be aware that the passwords are not saved to your config files, so you have to reset the passwords each time you update the config.
