I have a Brocade FCX-4XG and I'm connected to the serial console. I would like to change the terminal length of this console to facilitate scripting, but unlike a cisco or juniper, it's not terribly obvious how to do this...

FCX648 Switch#term 
FCX648 Switch#
FCX648 Switch(config)#term 
Unrecognized command
FCX648 Switch(config)#
FCX648 Switch(config)#console 
  timeout   Idle timeout
FCX648 Switch(config)#

Any ideas how to do this? The manual doesn't seem to say either.

I know this is a bit late but if you haven't found an answer yet, the command you are looking for is skip-page-display entered from an enabled prompt.

Thank you Chris, I am not in the lab so I can't check... I will let you know whether this worked tomorrow – Mike Pennington Jan 10 '12 at 6:31
