Cisco Routers, Stop the Stopping

In my current job I am also the network guy.  It is not a skill set I am strong in but I am learning A LOT.  One of the things I have just been dealing with is the “—MORE —” in the putty screen when I issue a command that goes beyond my current screen height.  When I do a “show config” or “show ip route”, I get a few pages of information back.  If I want to then copy it off I have to go back and remove the “— MORE —“.  I just found a command that is saving me.

“terminal length 0”

Setting the terminal length to zero tells the router to not do a page break.  WOW, is this my new favorite command!
