When initiating a prompt command through the Terminal Window, it is subject to a timeout of 10 seconds. This means that if the command does not receive a response within this timeframe, it will be considered as having timed out or not successfully executed.

History Commands:

All the commands history can be found on Site Admin › Diagnostics › Terminal under Device commands. 

Alternatively, you can access the Commands or SMS history directly from the Terminal window under the Commands or SMS tabs.
