Description (partial)

When looking for information about VPN Users on the FTD CLISH using the command: "show vpn-sessiondb anyconnect filter name if name contains a backslash "\" the command is interpreted as a Linux instruction.


> show vpn-sessiondb anyconnect filter name abc\steve
INFO: There are presently no active sessions of the type specified

You need to add an extra backlash to interrupt to be interpreted as a Linux instruction (or use diagnostic-cli mode instead):

> show vpn-sessiondb anyconnect filter name abc\\steve

Session Type: AnyConnect

Username     : abc\\steve           Index        : 2020
