Use the Cisco IOS console to permanently configure terminal length (CISCO)

Posted on 7/13/18 12:36 PM by Get Schooled in Cisco, in Cisco IOS, in Tips & Tricks

There are simple ways to temporarily adjust your timing so that the terminal length displays all the output in the same window, but if you’re consistently exceeding the default 24-line limit it’s probably time to make a permanent change. The temporary expansion of the terminal length is great if you’re in the habit of hitting the space bar every 24 lines, but the permanent change will improve your efficiency even more. A new default length of 40 lines is considered acceptable by most networks, but it should not exceed that length.

To permanently increase the default terminal length for future IOS sessions, type the following into the console: Router#conf t Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z. Router(config)#line vty 04 Router(config-line)#len Router(config-line)#length ? <0-512> Number of lines on screen (0 for no pausing) Router(config-line)#length 40.
