Description (partial)


This is applicable to a PIX only and does not affect the ASA. 
On a PIX from a console, telnet or SSH session, if you enter
a show command without any keyword, but instead use
the '|' character to search for a string in the output, the 
current session will hang indefinitely. 

Example, 'show | inc test', where the show command is not using
any keywords.


PIX where show command is entered without any keyword.
