Pipe symbol not working in pfsense shell

  • Hi all

    possibly this has been answered elsewhere but have checked both forum and wiki to no avail, and google search turned up nothing either except for a possibly related issue where user got a US keyboard layout despite choosing another.

    I have pfsense 2.0.1 installed in Virtualbox running on a Linux host on a Lenovo T520 laptop (with UK keyboard layout). Pipe symbol on the lappy works fine except within pfsense shell. I've tried ALT+124 and also every other keyboard combo I can think of but nothing works. I can access via SSH ok and get the pipe that way but would like to know what I'm doing wrong or if this is a known issue under virtualbox perhaps. Hoping someone has seen this before or can point me in the right direction.

    Thanks, Tom

    Must be related to the keyboard layout as it's fine here even in vbox, I use it all the time.

    Try running:


    And selecting your actual keyboard mapping there.

  • Thanks Jimp, that did the trick nicely.
