Cisco terminal length 0 and –more–

From time to time I just need to perform a simple dump of a configuration file from a Cisco IOS device for backup or review purposes, such as a from a router or switch. However, for switch stacks or complex configurations the configuration file can be long, and when using something like Putty to log all the terminal/ssh actions to a file, there is no need to constantly press any key at the –more– prompt. To avoid this, you can simply enter:
terminal length 0
at the enable (#) prompt. From there you will no longer see page breaks but rather have the data scroll out to you the entire configuration file. This also avoids the needs to go back and find/replace the –more– elements from a dump.

Enjoy!
