Reverse SSH Issue

I have an issue which I am not sure how to resolve.

I have three devices, one I use as out of band

I run reverse ssh from device 1 to device 2 console

I then reverse ssh from device 2 aux to device 3 console

My question is, if I forget to kill the line aux 0 on the second device

I always remain connected from device 1 to device 3

How do I prevent this happening and how can I kill the session (I am going to reload the router) but it would be nice to just clear the session.

 I want to avoid this issue in the future

 Hi ,

 To resume back on to your device 2 console , 

if you nest sessions, the Ctrl-Shift-6 x will go back to the top one, Ctrl-Shift-6 + Ctrl-Shift-6 + x will go to the second one, etc.



Just try typing "1" or "2"

Thanks, maybe I didn't

Thanks, maybe I didn't explain this as well as I could

What I want is to ensure that the connections to the AUX port and Console are dropped after a given time

I had configured exec timeout but I ended up adding a session timeout

Issue resolved
