Import Router Configuration

The Import Command

Command name: /import


The root level command /import [file_name] restores the exported information from the specified file. This is used to restore configuration or part of it after a /system reset event or anything that causes configuration data loss.

Note that it is impossible to import the whole router configuration using this feature. It can only be used to import a part of configuration (for example, firewall rules) in order to spare you some typing.

Command Description

file=[filename] – loads the exported configuration from a file to router


To load the saved export file use the following command:

[admin@MikroTik] > import address.rsc
Opening script file address.rsc
Script file loaded successfully
[admin@MikroTik] >

(from mikrotik dot com)
