supout.rif is a binary file and (i suppose) not designed for restore (it designed for treatment in support). However you may view his content by uploading that on into your account (you need register).

For backup/restore you must use these Winbox commands: Files->Backup and Files->Restore. You can drag'drop these files with Explorer. These files also are binary.

Another way is using console commands (in "New Terminal" in Winbox, or in connection via telnet or ssh) export and import.
E.g., export your current config to file backup_at_20130816.conf

ros code

/export file=backup_at_20130816.conf
That file appear in "Files" window of Winbox. Then you can restore this config on other devices:

ros code

/import file=backup_at_20130816.conf
These files are plain text, so you can download it on PC, edit, and then use for configure devices.
