When someone is talking about a basic/base configuration of a network device, does this mean the startup configuration file? And when a full configuration is referenced how is it different from a basic configuration file? You might know that I a newbie in this field already. But your inputs might help severals like me. Thank you in advance.

A basic or base configuration is typically referred to, as the minimal configuration needed for your network device to function.

A full configuration is typically the basic/base configuration plus all the extra security features, management configurations and other features that you can add to your network device.
