If you cut and paste your config onto an IOS-based switch using Hyperterminal, it breaks down about midway. This occurs because Hyperterminal sends the text too quickly for the switch, particularly if a command returns a message, such as portfast. To avoid this, in Hyperterminal, select File – Properties; click the Settings tab, click the ASCII button, and add a character delay of 5 milliseconds. You should now be able to cut and paste your config successfully.
