Increase PuTTY scrollback limit to match PuTTY


great program, loving it so far. :-)

I have noticed that in the terminal connection settings, under advanced > input > scrollback the field scrollback lines is limited to a maximum value of 99999 lines.

PuTTY however, allows up to 2147483647 lines of scrollback (2^31-1).

It is quite easy to exceed 100k lines in a terminal session, particularly if push erased text into scrollback is enabled.

Programs like top, less, tail, cat, etc. will chew that up in no time. ;-)

Can you please raise this limit?


Awesome, thanks! That was quick! :-)

Hi Christian,

the next release will allow you to configure up to 2147483647 for putty connections. If you are using rebex, the max will still be 99999 lines.
