copy/paste MD5 auth key

I know I should test it myself but just wanna see if someone has already noticed this before! If you do a copy/paste of router config from one oruter to the other does it also copy the MD5 key? I believe MD5 generates different hash value each time for the same clear text characters.

Re: copy/paste MD5 auth key

Hi,

MD5 will always generate the same hash value.

This is how it works,when you type in the password the hash of that password has to match the same hash of the password you entered when you configured the router.

Regards,

Lior
