OT: Command Prompt Hangs after Telnet timeout

Unanswered Question
May 13th, 2009

So in windows if i have a telent session open to a router/switch after a while it will timeout. Typically if that command prompt has been open for several hours, when i come back to it i cannot exit or close the window. Going into task manager and trying to kill the process does nothing, i can't reboot or shutdown from windows. The only way to fix it is to physically power off the PC.

My question is, is anyone else experiencing this and do they have a solution. If not, what are my alternatives in windows for using the built in telent? (I despise hyperterminal, so that's out)

Thanks all!

I have this problem too.
