    Default entering special characters on 2006 control?

    I am trying to connect our 2006 TL2 to the network. I have everything functioning properly except this:

    I need to enter "WIP\TL2" in the netshare path line.

    I can't for the life of me figure out how to get the \ in the line. I have tried everything I found on the internet to get to the special characters (Hit F1 while in the USB or Hard drive, Hit F3) but no joy.

    I am wondering if I am missing a file that the F1 command is supposed to find?

    We bought the machine used and it came with a 3.5 floppy disk marked CNC data disk, however the machine doesn't have a floppy drive, just the USB.

    Any suggestions? I have been talking to a tech at HFO, but he is stuck also.

    Software version L07.02A

    Are you certain the F1 key works ?

    Sometimes it's the dumb stuff ...

    Could you write a short program from your PC with the character in the comment (even the whole path), Load into the machine and copy/paste into Netshare?

    It seems like the copy paste doesn't work inside the network setup window.
    I wonder if it would recogonize a keyboard if I plugged it in the USB connector? I will see if I have one here....

    Nope.

    I tried that one a dozen times. Nothing happens when F1 is depressed.

    i think your remote share path (908) in netshare needs to be to the target directory itself (TL2) , rather than the nested sub-directory (WIP\TL2).

    If I leave it at WIP I can see all of the folders in that directory and I can page down till I get to the TL2 folder and it will open it just fine, however, I don't want the operator to have to do all that.

    If I just put TL2 there, It can't find it. (server permission denied)

    try this - Special Character Entry: the control may not recognize a symbol you are trying to use.

    Press LIST PROG.
    Press the RIGHT cursor arrow to the USB tab.
    Press HELP/CALC.
    Press the DOWN cursor arrow to Special Symbols.
    Press the DOWN cursor arrow to the correct symbol.
    Press WRITE/ENTER.
    Press SETNG/GRAPH to continue typing characters.

    I can make it to step #3 but I don't see an option for Special Characters...

    Total longshot, but Unix uses slashes (/) instead of backslashes (\). Some network software will accept either one interchangeably. So you could try using a / instead of a \.

    I wouldn't get my hopes up but can't hurt to try.

    Nope, it doesn't like that either.

    I am still hunting around for a USB keyboard.
