Shortcut key to break out of telnet sessions?

Answered Question
Aug 25th, 2009

All,

I can telnet from Router A -> B -> C -> D.

Now, from router D, I can ctrl-shift-6-x and get back to router A. Router A will show one connection to router B. How, if even possible, would I be able to break from Router D to Router C without quitting the telnet session? Is there a keystroke that will let you do that?

Also, does anyone (Edison?) have a list of Cisco supported, undocumented keystrokes? I've looked and can't find much on it.

Thanks,

John

I have this problem too.

John,

I can't address your first issue at the moment, I'll have to investigate.

On your second request, this URL contains the most commonly used keystrokes while using the CLI

HTH,
