How to backup and restore a config file with pre-shared key encryption

Hi,

I am Ashley and I have used encryption aes for pre-shared key encryption and it works fine.

My question relates to restore of the saved configuration of the router (assuming failed  onto another router. How do I proceed?

I have got the original router configuration in txt format, the master key password.

I want to copy the content of the config file and paste into the console of the spare router. I have Can this be done?

Do I simply configure the Master Key and paste configuration onto the spare router and this enable the same encrypted pre-shared key.

Thanks again,

Ashley

How to backup and restore a config file with pre-shared key encr

Hello Ashley,

Yes, that is the way it should work.Once you configure the master key correctly on the new router, the Type 6 encrypted password should become usable for the router again. Try it out.

Best regards,

Peter
