I have a problem with one PIX 515 firewall, the others are all OK.  When I connect via hyperterminal and type show run the WHOLE config scrolls through to the end rather than stopping after a page of info.

I am sure that there is an obvious answer but I cannot find it :)  Please help!

Why don't you use a beter terminal program than the standaard Windows one?
I preffer Putty but some people use Tera Term.
These usually work better.

It is also doing the same thing with tera term.  I have never seen it before and it is only happening on one PIX.

O ok I get it.

A terminal length configuration value of 0 causes output to scroll by without stopping.

You should go to your router/firewall and type

Router#terminal length 25 (or the amount of lines you want to see before the screen stops)

Sorry I see you are using a Pix. So the command is a little different.

Here's the Cisco link

It looks like the commands on the link are for switches and routers.  I have tried on the pix but it does not accept either command.

Thanks for all your help ensermo.  You giving me the command for the router made it easy to find for the pix.  I was in the dark beforehand.
