Tip for Unix/Linux users

Using a UNIX or Linux machine and need to send a show tech or log to the Cisco TAC? Try using the tee command after the pipe (|) command.This creates a file that records all key strokes and output.An exampleis Telnet Router-name| tee hold.When you’re ready, just attach the file named “hold” to the e-mail instead of doing a copy and paste.Because passwords are not echoed  back to the screen, they do not appear inthe file.This also works well when you are  trying to find something specific in large ARP tables or routing tables.
