How can I paste long text on 'banner line'?

Hi, I need to copy a half page long banner from Notepad and make it as my router login banner. On config t I do

"banner login line".

Then when I try to paste the text by doing "CTRL+V" on my keyboard, I get errors below. How can I correctly paste this long text onto the banner login command then?

Myswitch(config)#$e with all applicable laws. Any unauthorized use of or

to use this system in compliance with all applicabl e laws. Any unauthorized use ^ of or

% Invalid input detected at '^' marker.

What are you using as your delimiter? NB. you cannot use the delimiter anywhere in your message.

What switch/IOS do you have?

There is a maximum of 255 characters for most login banners.

Yes, it sounds like the delimiter I was using appeared in the text. Solved.

Thanks.
