How to migrate configurations between different router series

What can we do if we want to copy the configuration file from a Vigor2926 to a Vigor2865?

Apart from the commonly used backup/restore feature for the entire router's config, Vigor routers also support backup/restore of configuration files on a per function basis, such as Firewall, IP Object, VPN, Mesh Setup, Wireless LAN, Bind IP to MAC and Access Control, which makes the process of configuration more user-friendly, especially when switching from one router series to another series, for example upgrading from the Vigor2762 to Vigor2865, etc.

The supported functions and the setup steps are listed below:

1. Firewall

2. IP Object

3. VPN Remote Dial-in User/LAN to LAN
