SHIFT key + Pg Up doesn't seem to work.

Can somebody post how to scrollback in terminal ?
scroll lock, and pgup
After you hit scroll-lock, up/down/pgup/pgdn/home/end all work, you can
copy and paste the history text with your mouse, and there's a separate
history per VTY.  You can also set the number of scrollback lines with
the "vidcontrol -n ###" command.  Significantly better than Linux's

Yes it is. As you get into BSD more, you'll find it makes more logical sense to stick with it, over Linux. Welcome to the group.
