I'm sure I'm missing something very basic, but I can't figure out how to get debugging messages to display to a monitor (i.e., ssh) session on a 3750. If I connect directly to the console I get the messages as expected. I've set the logging level for the monitor but no messages show up.


Output of show logging:

Console logging: level debugging, 431 messages logged, xml disabled,

filtering disabled

Monitor logging: level debugging, 0 messages logged, xml disabled,

filtering disabled

To display debug command output and system error messages for the current terminal and session, use the terminal monitor EXEC command.

Usage Guidelines

Remember that all terminal parameter-setting commands are set locally and do not remain in effect after a session is ended.


In the following example the system is configured to display debug command output and error messages during the current terminal session:

Router# terminal monitor


Hope that helps.

from vty you should use the command as told above.

#terminal monitor ---> to start logging

#terminal no monitor ----> to stop logging

The reason why you are getting the msg from console is bec the console logging is enabled.

to check you can log in to console and

config t

no logging console

This command will stop the logs on on the console login mode.

Let us know about this.
