question mark in notepad and copy it to dial peer

hi all,

We have about 100 dial peers and each dial peer has 2 question marks in it (e.g 21?2?....). It is very hard to insert '?' with Ctrl+V in console. I would like to config the '?' in notepad then copy it to console. is there any way to do that.

Re: question mark in notepad and copy it to dial peer


one feasible way out here is you can copy the whole lot of config into a notepad file & remove the .txt extension from it then TFTP (copy) the same onto ur box as a startup config.

This will be ok if you are parllely setting up a new box with the other one running in production network.

coz after tftping u need to reset so that the config will be effective.

But if u have to do in the box which is in the live network do copy and paste but dont do it in a single strech which mite end up in erroring.

Just take step by step of like around some 10 or 15 peers at a time and paste on the prompt.

Coz we did face some kinda error when we copy paste the whole lot of thing onto the prompt..
