How can I enter a long command that spans more than the characters allowed in the Operator Console Services (OCS) window?  Can the screen be increased to multiple lines, or is there a continuation character I can use?


All releases and variations of Netmaster Suite SOLVE:Operations SOLVE:Access SOLVE:Central

There is no way to expand the input line in OCS and also no continuation character that will allow for a longer command.  It allows for 124 characters (in MOD5 Telnet emulation) but not more.

However, Command Entry (enter CMD from any command line in Netmaster) has 2 lines that can be used for entering commands, allowing for almost twice as many characters.
