Hi N,

Hit the keys (Ctrl + Shift + 6) together and then hit x alphabet

It will surely work.

thanks for that Ankur. Where in the world did Cisco decide on that for an abort sequence!

that didn't work

Hi N,

It should work can you try (Ctrl + shift + 6) together or press ctrl keep holding it then press shift keep holding both and then press 6.

Should work, I checked again.

I'v egot it to work but don't ask how! it's a case of continually pressing all four buttons until the trace stops.

Thanks Ankur for your help.

It's the same sequence that breaks you from a connection, you should be able to easily do it with practice(and you will get lots of practice telneting into your various routers and switches).

The 6 is not necessary, it will drop you out of the traceroute or ping seqence without it.
