Syntax error when trying to connect to a cluster

I’m trying to follow instructions on how to connect to a Cluster from Mongo Shell. I have a connection string below.
mongo "mongodb://,," --ssl --authenticationDatabase admin --username m001-student --password <PASSWORD>

After substituting with real password and press enter I get the error message below.
2018-11-11T12:16:23.656+0300 E QUERY [js] SyntaxError: missing ; before statement @(shell):1:6

I have the same issue on Windows 10 as well as on Ubuntu 18.10. What am I missing? I could not decipher where the character ; should be.


do you still have the issue?
Using your shell command above, I was able to connect from a Ubuntu box to this cluster.
