Turning off the '?' in IOS

Discussion in 'Cisco' started by John Chajecki, Dec 17, 2005.

  1. Hi all,

    Does anyone know how to temporarily turn off the interactive help feature that you get by pressing '?' in IOS?

    I am trying to enter a URL into a DDNS update method like so:

    add http://jchajecki:...ystem=dyndns&hostname=millcorner.ath.cx&myip=<a>

    Every time the parser hits the '?' in the URL, it interprets it as the help command and breaks the line.

    Before typing the "?" hit CTRL-v

  4. Merv,

    Tried that one. An instinct gained from regular expressions!
    Sorry. It didn't work in this case.

  5. David,

    Thanks. I knew there must be a control sequence or something to do this.
    That worked fine.

    PS. Sorry about the double post.
