How to paste ? into the config line on a router

Hi Ron,

I am not sure about "pasting" the entire URL and frankly, I do not believe it is possible. However, if you have the option of typing the URL manually, you can enter the question mark character '?' by first pressing the key combination , then releasing it and writing the '?' sign. The combination removes the special meaning of the '?' character, and it will be accepted simply as a letter, not as a help invocation.

Alternatively, you could paste the URL in two parts - up to the '?' character, then write the , and then paste the rest.

Best regards,

Peter

Try this ...

1.  SAVE the line you want entered in a notepad, let say we'll call it "baddabing.txt".

2.  Enable TFTP and point the default folder to the directory where the file baddabing.txt is located.

3.  Use the following command in the router:  copy tftp:///baddabing.txt run

Hope that helps.  Works for me all the time.
