Most devices accept (negotiate) the terminal length sent by telnet/ssh and
most allow the pager to essentially be disabled by setting the terminal
length to zero.  Some (broken) devices, like Foundry, have a global setting
to disable/enable the pager that is permanent and affects all users.

So, what flavour is the netscreen?  Do you have the latest firmware?  Do
you have a properly functioning/configured client?
