Please tell me how to "break" a telnet inside putty?

Lets say, I login to a cisco router via console, telnet or ssh using putty, then entered "telnet 8.8.8.8". While the router is showing/doing "Trying 8.8.8.8...", what is the correct esc sequence to stop that telnet?

I tried Ctrl+Shift+6, Ctrl+Shift+6+6, Ctrl+Shift+6+x, Ctrl+Shift+6+6+x, Ctrl+C, Ctrl+C&Ctrl+C, Ctrl+C+X...

Also What if I want to break "ssh -l test 8.8.8.8" entered onto router via putty?

Please advise.

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

or
"CTRL + SHIFT + 6 + X"

you can also refer to the below link for other possible combination:
