DDNS command problem in CLI with the question mark

Unanswered Question
Feb 15th, 2007

Hi

I've configured a CISCO857 router for internet access that gets a dynamic public address. To be able to join this router via his public dynamic ip address, i've configured DDNS method with dyndns.org site. Now i can telnet this router with his name without knowing the dynamic IP received. All of this works.

Now my question: i need to configure a lot of those routers with the same parameters (except private addresses, hostname for example). I create a template config and copy/paste it in cli config mode. There is this particular command for ddns:

add <A HREF="javascript:newWin('http://test:[email protected]/nic/update?system=dyndns&hostname')">http://test:[email protected]/nic/update?system=dyndns&hostname</A>=<h>&myip=<a>

and the problem is that when the question mark is paste in the cli , the router interpret the ? as a help query and the command is not completed.

Is there a trick to have the question mark be interpreted as a character and not as help query since the template created by a notepad ?

PS : i know that when configuring this command directly with the keyboard in the cli, you need to press Ctrl v , but how to manage this with a notepad file ?

Thanks

I have this problem too.

this is due to the occurance of the bug CSCsh51342.

the workaround is,

Workaround:

1. Insert twice "\" characters than needed if you insist doing it from CLI.

2. Insert flex filter in WBM

3. Pay attention to flex filter configuration after importing running config - fix the flex filters manually from WBM if needed.
