Cisco Tip: Get a New Line After a Console Message

One of the things that makes us crazy when working with Cisco routers is how console messages interrupt console input. You can make your Cisco router return a fresh line after console logging messages by adding the command logging synchronous in the line con 0 configuration:

router#conf t
router(config)#line con 0
router(config-line)#logging synchronous
