Simple thing (probably) that I just never had an answer for

is there a way to abort an extended ping or trace route? For example when troubleshooting between 2 adjacent (or nearly so) routers, is there a way to stop/abort a trace in progress (or a higher count ping)? It is very frustrating to sit and watch 30 hops timeout when I know there are at most 1 or two hops.

Using Putty and SSH. Tried sending Breaks, CTRL-C, etc, but so far nothing has worked, but I can't imagine that theres NOT a way to break out I have just never found it in 10+ years of configuring routers and pixs

I have found that the keystroke combination of shift CTRL 6 to be effective in breaking an extended ping or traceroute. Frequently I have to enter the keystroke combination several times. But several iterations usually does break the ping or traceroute.
