Cisco Command Prompt Tricks and Gotchas part 2

Shall you ever be unfortunate enough to come across a device with a setup similar to

exec-timeout 0 1

or maybe you’re just doing a CCIE exam, then you’ll need a little bit of practical trickstery to overcome the one second timeout – just use notepad or whatever text editor you have to type something like

enable
conf t
line vty 0 4/line con 0
exec-timeout 10

and then quickly paste it in the window of 1 second. Done! 🙂
