Console Cable Scrolling

Not applicable

I am having issues with console cable connectivity and scrolling when working in a box.  Basically the short of it is, no matter what console program I use, albeit putty; I get about 40 lines shown, and when I go to view more it overwrites the bottom 20 to 30 and only leaves so much up top.  Wierd thing on putty is...  If you log into the box and do a show, it's fine and scrolls great, until I do a "show" again...  Then it's back to similar syptoms.  Same on a 500 or 2020, 4.1.2.  Thanks!

Looks like if I just resize my session to 24ish lines it scrolls fine...  Would like to be able to scroll the whole screen though.

Try entering the following command:

set cli terminal type putty

then restart your putty session.
