I use a putty telnet client for ssh connection to the linux server.
when I issue a command like
I get a long list of info if the number of files is a long list
Yes I can use a command ls -ltr|more
There is a scroll bar on the side which I can use to scroll back and forth
However the buffer size is small - Is there an option in putty to increase the buffer size or is there another telnet ssh client which has an option to increase buffer size
I have tried Absolute telnet - this works well but costs 50 dollars
Any clues ?
rjnlinux: these are programs for Windows so you are better off asking on a Windows forum for this
well yes putty is a windows telnet client
however a lot of linux users/ admin use windows to login to the server
I have found a suitable client
funny - huh - I ask a question and I answer it myself...well it happens
The client that I downloaded is free for home/school it is called xshell 3.0
available at download.com
It has a bigger buffer size.
yes, these are windows programs, but at least they are a bridge to freedom :D
The scrollback buffer can be set in putty in the category "window".
It is set to 200 by default, set it to whatever you like.
Normally, I use Cygwin on my Windows systems and run telnet, or better still ssh, from there. I can configure my Cygwin shell windows to have a big scroll-back buffer (up to 9999 lines, I think). The price is right, $0 - and they also have a good X11 server so I can log in with ssh and X11 tunneling, then run X applications on the server that display on my Windows PC. I find that works really well on client systems when they don't have a proper VPN, but do allow SSH connections from outside their firewall.
