Default terminal length is sometimes be a pain in the neck. Specailly when you want to record an out of a command such as “Show Run”. You have noticed that you need to type the space bar or “enter” key to move down the output. This is because there is set number by default on your cisco terminal.
#show terminal — will show you the settings of the terminal.
#terminal length 0 — will take out the lengthing
#terminal default length — will make it back to default
#no pager — sometimes you have to use this command to do the same thing. Depending on the devices. For example, Cisco PIX is using “no pager” command instead.
hope this helps!
