Using MacWise with Cisco Routers

When you log into a Cisco Router with telnet, you may need to tell the router how many lines of data that the MacWise screen is set to.

The symptom is this:
When you list several pages of text to the screen, the listing should stop at each page and have -more- at the bottom of the screen. When you hit the space bar, it should show you the next page.

If instead, it just scrolls through the entire document without stopping, here is the solution:
At the Cisco Router prompt, enter the following:
terminal length 24
(that will tell the router that MacWise is set to a 24-line screen).

You can use Connection Scripts in MacWise to automatically send the terminal length command during login.

MacWise 11.51 Fixes Scroll Bar Problem

The Scroll Bar was intermittently getting disabled and dimmed.
This happened when any data was sent to the screen causing the scroll bar to move while MacWise was in the background. The symptom commomly occured when MacWise was in the background and the host timed out the telnet session, sending the "connection closed by foreign host" message and causing the scroll bar to move.
