Have you tried less command

sudo less /etc/security/user

Hope it will be useful to you.

Thank you ! I am using someone sudo user to connect third party machine and when I try to run this command it asks for sudo password. Hopefully it should work but not sure. let me get a chance to work on it and post reply soon. thank you any way

Well, if sudo cat /etc/security/user works, why not just add | less to the end of it?

Or direct the file to a new file, and do with it as you please?

I got another way of doing it
sudo cat /etc/security/user | more
if list does not exist may be | less will not work, try | more
please comment on it, same thing apply to
sudo cat /etc/security/passwd | more
