My SFTP password has a symbol that I can't find on my keyboard.

Applies to
  • SFTP

The pipe symbol ( | ) is a vertical line character found on the backslash key on US PC and Mac keyboards. It is located above the Enter key and below the Backspace key. To enter the pipe symbol:

  • Press and hold down the <Shift> key while pressing the backslash key < \ > on a QWERTY keyboard.
  • Use the ASCII code:
    1. Press and hold down <Alt>.
    2. Enter 124 on your numeric keypad. You may need to press <Num Lock> to enable the keypad.
    3. Release the <Alt> key.
