Question Serial / console connection incomplete show commands

I have an odd situation where my console connections will not display all of the output of a show command from a router.

This is with a 2015 Macbook, i7 ---- this used to work, but now it doesn't. A sho ver, for instance, give me half of the show version from the router. A show runn displays about 20 lines and stops.

Using any other protocol and it works fine --- I get the output I need. Going into my Windows 10 VM and using the console cable on the VM, I don't have this problem. At first I thought it was an issue with the router itself and nearly sent it back to Cisco, but it's just a problem with console connections from my Mac.

Any ideas?

What's different now on your machine or in SecureCRT vs. when it used to work?

By "console cable", do you mean you're using a USB->Serial converter?

If you're using the same hardware and you're successful on Windows 10 in your VM, but it doesn't work in native Mac OS X, it would likely point to an issue with the driver of your USB->Serial converter.

Have you checked to see if the manufacturer of your console cable has any updated drivers for your version of Mac OS X?

Have you tried using any other USB->Serial converter devices to see if you get different results?
