This seems to be a relatively new setting and it looks like it is related to the confusing stock symbol format implemented by IB several months ago:

Here is the link to API Release Notes:

Are we supposed to enter the "slash" in that box (as shown in the screenshot above) or leave it blank?

Once there is a clear answer please update IB Setup Instructions page:

I use IB Gateway...should I add the / to the Component Exch. Separator field as well, or is this just for TWS?

I trade futures and haven't had any issues without it, but just want to make sure.

Yes you will need to do that for sure.

But it is not relevant for futures but you should do it anyway just in case.
