    Post-Login Keystroke


      I am trying to pull the runnin config from a device where after I login I get the following prompt:


      Please press "Enter" to continue!


      I am having trouble handling this with the Post-Login Message and Keystroke Variations.  It is apparent that I can't use quotes in the Post-Login message, but I don't see how to escape that character so that it is accepted.  Past that, it is not clear how to send a "enter" pres with the Post-Login Keystroke.  Is it like a "space" where I just need to literally type out "enter" or is there some code I should be using instead?


      Has anyone else run into this issue?  What can I do to resolve it?

            Thanks for the response bkyle.  Unfortunately it still hasn't resolved my issue.  I'm thinking the Post-Login Message may be the culprit.  Do you have any idea how to escape the " character or if there is something else I should be using instead?

            Can you enable capture mode, and post the output here?
