ASA 5520 Cancel/Abort Command

So, I made the fatal mistake while consoled in to do a "Show Run".

Now, it is just stuck in that cycle.

I tried the usual "Ctrl+Shift+6" command, and even the "Ctrl+6" with no success.

Any help would be great.

Thanks

ASA 5520 Cancel/Abort Command

Yes, this can be a bit tricky as the ASA is unique in the convention of using "q" as the key to exit out of paging.

I usually precede what I expect to be a long output with "term pager 0" and/or log my console session to a text file for offline searching and manipulation of the output.

The "q" is documented here as follows:

Command Output Paging

On commands such as help or?, show, show xlate, or other commands that provide long listings, you can determine if the information displays a screen and pauses, or lets the command run to completion. The pager command lets you choose the number of lines to display before the More prompt appears.

When paging is enabled, the following prompt appears:

<--- More --->

The More prompt uses syntax similar to the UNIX more command:

To view another screen, press the Space bar.

To view the next line, press the Enter key.

To return to the command line, press the q key.

Hello Kyle,

What program are you using to do the console session to the ASA ( Hyperterminal,Putty) because on Putty you can press the Q on your keyboard and that will end the show run display if that is what you are looking for.

Hope this is what you are looking for.

Regards,

Julio
