    Using windows commnad prompt and telneting into a router I trace to
    certain devices. If for some reason this fails I would like to abort
    the trace. Could anyone tell me what the escape sequence is? The
    message on trace is

    "Type escape sequence to abort"

    Thx...

    The default is [Control]^

    To get that you carry out the folowing.
    On US and UK keyboards anyway.

    Press and hold the Shift and Control keys. The left ones work.
    Then press and release the 6 key.

    It is complicated since ^ is [Shift]6 so to get [Cntrl]^ you need
    to press

    [Shitf][Cntrl]^


    Good luck.

    branigan,

    The Windows command prompt break sequence is Ctrl+C. Shft+Ctrl+6 is the break sequence when using the Cisco IOS CLI.

    Let me know if this helps you.
