How do you send a "Break" on puTTY to a cisco 2600 Terminal server

Unanswered Question
Jan 14th, 2012

I have a cisco 2621XM Terminal server connected to A router.  The Terminal server has 32 ports and connected to 32 cisco deviceses. I was trying to login one of my Router which is cisco router 7609 that has a sup-720. The sup-720 failed and I was trying to upgrade the IOS on the sup-720. when I reload it and send a "BREAK" from the puTTY it didn't work.  Is there any way I can send a BREAK from the puTTY or push any key that works.

Thanks.

I have this problem too.

Hi,

If the standard break sequences do not work, you can try the special commands: right click on the header of putty / Special Commands / Break.

Cheers,

use "CTRL + SHIFT + 6 + X"

as far as I know..

and also there is command to enable break on boot.

But, I forgot... try to read IOS command guide.

Not to ressurect a dead thread, but you guys are referencing break sequences for a computer directly connected to a console. All attempts I've tried for these sequences when doing reverse telnet through a terminal server (in my case a 3725) are completely ignored. To my knowledge there's no way to correct this issue.

Yes it's possible. Configure telnet break-on-ip. Then send Interrupt Process signal with Putty Special Command menu.

You, sir, are my new best friend. I wish I could mark this question as answered.

Standard Break Key Sequence Combinations During Password Recovery

you can use the key combination of CTRL+Break.

or

right click on the header of putty / Special Commands / Break.

Just as others before, you are not understood the question.

That is, how to send break from a Cisco asynch interface, not how to send break from Putty with serial connection.

Read answer by myself.

Legend. Thank you. Ive been using Putty ofr year never realised the Break command. I couldn't get any of my Mac buttons to work with the VM. It solved my problems.
