How to restore the backup configuration file from a HyperTerminal Emulator

David Davis David Davis Profile: David Davis

In a previous blog entry (Using Text Capture in HyperTerminal to backup and restore your Cisco IOS configuration) I demonstrated how to use the Hyperterminal Text Capture to backup your Cisco IOS configuration.

In this post, you can see how to restore that Cisco IOS configuration. Here is how you do it, step by step:

a. Log into the router using HyperTerminal.
b. Go into router global config mode.
c. From the HyperTerminal window, choose Transfer / Send Text File.
d. Select the name of the file for the saved backup configuration.
e. The lines of the configuration are being displayed into the router. Look for any errors.
f. After the config is complete, press the CNTL-Z keys to exit global config mode.
g. Restore the startup configuration with the command, copy running-config startup-config.
