    Depends on your SSH client app and if it supports changing it. SecureCRT SSH client i use i set it to max 128000 lines :)

    I am having the same:

    Code:
    [[email protected] ~]# cat ~/.screenrc
    defscrollback 200000
    Damn is only limiting me on screen and not on normal ssh session.....
