Hi

I would like to know if it is possible to copy the config of a Cisco 878 Router to a 887 Model.

I will be using putty and I have got the copy of the running config from the 878 in a text file.  I just need to know if it is possible and how to do it using PUTTY?

I would like the newer 887 model to replace the old 878 I have very limited knowledge of Cisco routers and so any help would be great

I guess I should have asked at the start if you can copy configs from one model of router to a different one?

Thanks

You can copy and paste after running "config t" on the new switch, however, make sure you have the same hardware such as same interfaces.

Some features may not be the same though.

You can also backup and restore the configuration using TFTP command.

Hi infamus,

Thanks for coming back to me.

I have the 887 box which has been factory reset.  Do I have to perform the initial config steps on it or can I just simply load the saved configuration file onto it.  when I try to paste the config file onto the new router using putty via a serial cable I keep getting errors?

No you don't have to perform initial settings.

If you getting an error, that means the command is not available or the specified interface or the feature is not available on the new router.

Can you show me what kind errors you are getting?
