Number of commands at once

Here is my issue, why does Palo seem to have a hard time handling anything more than 30 lines of CLI at a time?  Is there a preferred terminal emulator that works best with Palo Alto such as SecureCRT?  It's awful, the lines wrap back around onto themselves making it difficult to "tab" though commands.  But mostly, if I put in more than 25 to 30 lines of "delete shared address" for example, REALLY BAD things happen!!!

Hi @RobertShawver ,


I know that this is an old thread, but these commands work for me when I do bulk edits:


set cli terminal width 500

set cli pager off

set cli scripting-mode on


The docs say you can only do about 20 lines bulk paste without scripting mode on.  Please remember in scripting mode tab and context-sensitive help do not work.

I use SuperPutty in my home labs and SecureCRT at work. SecureCRT works definitely better. In SecureCRT i don't have those indeed awful issues with line wraps. It might be helpful even with the amount of commands you try to run, but can't confirm at this moment.

I use SecureCRT as well, but still have the line wrap issue.  Is there a setting or something that you did to help with this?

Sorry to hear that. I use it in pretty much the default configuration, except the terminal color. The only thing that might be different between your and mine setup is, that I use Mac. I can run very long commands such as show counter global filter delta yes aspect session value all severity drop category zip packet-filter yes without any wrappings. 

There is a line wrap option in SecureCRT. I have not used it personally, but it may help your problem. *** EDIT *** I just used it and it completely removed all line wraps when I tried it.


Options > Session Options > Terminal > Emulation > Modes. It is the second check box from the top on my version.
