Five data bits per character.

Six data bits per character.

Seven data bits per character.

Eight data bits per character. This is the default.


Command Description:

To set the number of data bits per character that are interpreted and generated by the router hardware, use the databits line configuration command. Use the no form of the command to restore the default value. The databits line configuration command can be used to mask the high bit on input from devices that generate 7 data bits with parity. If parity is being generated, specify 7 data bits per character. If no parity generation is in effect, specify 8 data bits per character. The other keywords are supplied for compatibility with older devices and generally are not used.
