How to stop a telnet session in IOS?

Answered Question
Jun 27th, 2007

When I try to telnet but get no reply, if I want to stop the session, is there any way for that? Ctrl+c is not working. Ctrl+shift 6 neither.

Thanks

If the CTRL-SHIFT+6+X combination doesn't work for you, you can try minimizing the wait with the command

ip tcp synwait-time

lower the wait-time to 5 seconds.

Hi,

If you are trying to telnet from a cisco router to a cisco router, then use the ctrl+shift+6 then release all and press x, and then type disconnect and press enter.

Yi

Try typing X after you have done the Ctrl+shift 6 combination. That should suspend the telnet that is in process. You can then type disconnect to terminate the telnet.

Thanks a lot for the answers.

However, the problem is if the telnet session is not up when the remote end is not responding, there seems no way to stop it, right?
