Yes it is possible. Simply copy the text in your notepad and then paste

the config into the router. Make sure the router is in config mode to start with ie.


then cut and paste your commands.

Also, there are commands that should go first in the configuration and not the same order as the "show run".

But unlike reality, you can't cut-n-paste in just one go (particularly if your configuration is long) because of the buffer.

  • Yeah I noticed, also if you dont have the same exact intefaces it will ignore the ones that do not exit and some other drawbacks. Kinda not too bad to get lazy with a sim but def not for live scenario.
