Copying config from one Access Point to another

Is there a way of copying the config file from one autonomous access point to another?  If so, will it replace the config during the copy?  I have two cisco 3702 access points.  I am looking for a way of getting the config from one to the other

Are these standalone APs or are they connected to a Wireless controller.

If they are connected to Wireless controller, then you don't need to copy any config as the Controllers handles all configurations.

If standalone (Autonomous mode), then copying the config may be needed.

Either way, connect to the console of the AP, show the config, highlight and copy it to notepad.
Connect to the new AP, paste the config while in config mode

Pasting the config is the easiest way BUT it needs to be done twice.  The first paste won't take some config because of the order in which commands need to be applied.

You can export the config via the AP GUI and import to the new AP if you're not used to the command line.

With IOS you need to copy running tftp:

For lightweight firmware you must use controller
