Entering a ? (Question mark) into IOS command?

Hello.

I need to enter an IOS command where a question mark is included into the string. Do do I do this? When I press "?", the CLI shows med the command syntax for the command. I am pretty sure there is some kind of escape key to press to tell CLI to interpret the ? as a normal character in my command. But I cannot find which key it is...

Thanks for your Help

Regards

Jimmy

Hello Jimmy,

this is an annoying problem indeed. To get the question mark enterd, type Ctrl + V, and the enter the ? character. That should do it...

Hello

That is not relevant. There is a command which includes a string with a ? within that I need to enter.

However, I?ve got the solution: CTRL-V.
