I would like to prevent Putty from setting the server terminal length so as to avoid the dreaded
--More-- prompt in Cisco IOS. Please do not tell me to set
length 0 in line config mode because this does not work with Putty.
terminal length 0 in exec mode does work but this must be executed every logon.
The problem appears to be that Putty is setting the terminal length on connect, because I can control the length by setting the Putty window size. When I resize the Putty window during the session the terminal length remains where it was.
