Transfer Network Configuration Settings

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?

i have never seen a way to import them back in, but Hyena (got to love it!) has a standalone util called exporter which will at least export the settings to a file so taht you have a clear reference after a rebuild

I checked out the app, and though it wasn't able to do everything I needed, it was still quite useful. Also found a lot of other interesting stuff on the website. Awarded you the points. Thanks.
