CCNA Certification And CCENT Certification:
What's the net effect of the following two commands?
line con 0
exec-timeout 0 0
Answer: Setting the exec-timeout command to zero minutes and zero seconds effectively disables the console line timeout, since that's where we're configuring the command. The logging synchronous command prevents console messages from appearing while you're entering a command; the message will appear after you hit Enter.
Both of these are great Cisco home lab commands, and they just might pop up on an exam or two as well!
