    Specifying the Character Set

    You can specify the number of data bits per character for the current vty session and for all subsequent sessions on the specified vty lines. This feature allows you to display international characters on the terminal’s screen.

    You can use the default setting, 8, to view the full set of 8-bit international characters. Be sure that the software on other devices in the network also supports international characters. You can set the number of bits to 7 to view only characters in the standard ASCII set.

    To set the number of bits per character on the terminal’s screen:

    • Set the number of bits per character on the terminal’s screen for all future sessions on the specified lines.
      host1(config)#line vty 1 3host1(config-line)#data-character-bits 7
    • Set the number of bits per character on the terminal’s screen for the current session.
      host1#terminal data-character-bits 7
