How to copy complete router configurations from one router to another

How can I copy the complete router configurations from one router to another? Please explain on the basis of the following scenarios:

1. Both routers are of the same model.

2. Both are of different models (one may be Cisco, the other, Juniper).

Re: How to copy complete router configurations from one router t

Not very sure what you are asking, so I'll just answer on the best of my understanding of the question.

Part 1: Cisco to Cisco configuration copying. (assuming exactly identical)

Step 1: Copy the text output of "show run" on the router you intend to copy from (Router 1)

Step 2: Plug into Router 2 and go into global config mode.

Step 3: Copy the configurations you got from Router 1and paste it into router 2

*Note - Partial copying is recommended (10 to 15 lines in one instance) just to ensure all commands are entered correctly.  Some configuration may require activation of other commands.

Part 2: Cisco to Others

You can't really do a direct copying.  You'd need to understand what you have in the Cisco Router and try and translate it over to Juniper JUNOS (based on the example that you had listed)
