Transfer Network Configuration Settings
Posted on 2006-11-07
Is there a utility that can copy the network configuration settings from one computer and install them on another pc? It doesn't look like the Files & Settings Transfer Wizard in XP can do this.
Occassionally I get called upon to replace a computer on an unfamiliar network where many of the pc's have their own unique, complex and confusing array of configurations. In these cases, I inevitably find myself wasting a lot of time tryiing to figure out how the network works, why it was configured a certain way and how to get the machine I am replacing to communicate with everything it needs to. It has occurred to me that it would save a ton of time if I had a utility that could simply clone the network configuration of the old pc and transfer it to the new pc.
Has anyone heard of such a thing?
