Introduction:

This Document describe about How to show the Complete Configuration without Breaks/Pauses on Cisco Router/Switches, ASA Firewall and WLC (Wireless LAN Controller)

On Cisco Router/Switches:

When you execute the show running-config (show run) command on Cisco router/Switches, the output will be paged through one screen at a time. This is useful as Cisco configuration can be very long and can have thousands of lines. It would be impractical to dump the whole configuration to screen and expect the admin to rely on their scroll buffer.

 

Default screen length is of 24 lines. It means only 24 lines can be show on screen .you can verify using “Show terminal” command as shown below.

 

Router#show terminal | in Length

Length: 24 lines, Width: 80 columns

Router#

 

However if u like to have freedom to choose, to execute show run without more you can use this method.

 

1. Type "terminal length 0" in privileged mode to set your terminal to display without any breaks.

2. Type "show run" or "show start" to show the applicable config. The config will display without any breaks or pauses.

 

To display the config without lengthy certificate data, use "show run brief ".

 

This is useful for capturing the complete config for documentation purposes, especially if you do not have access via TFTP or the like.

On a Cisco Wireless LAN Controller:

 

1. Type "config paging disable" in priviledged mode to set your terminal to display without any breaks.

 

2. Type "show run-config" to display the config.

 

On a Cisco ASA Firewall:

 

To change terminal line display there are two commands you can use:

 

1) pager : Sets the number of lines to display in a Telnet session before the "---more---" prompt. This command is saved to the configuration.

 

2) terminal pager:Sets the number of lines to display in a Telnet session before the "---more---" prompt. This command is not saved to the configuration.

 

The default is 24 lines; 0 means no page limit.

 

1. Type "pager 0" in priviledged mode to set your terminal to display without any breaks.

 

2. Type "show run-config" to display the config.

 

3. Type "pager 20" in priviledged mode to set your terminal to display with breaks every 20 lines.
