CTRL+SHIFT (together) and the number 6.  Sometimes you have to hit 6 repeatedly.  It will abort but you have to catch it early in the process.   I have found that after traceroute has completed three processes, the command won't take.

Hi Sharonee,

Try this

Ctrl + Shift + 6 + x

Ctrl + Shift + 6 shoul work as Jonathan said. But rather try this one.

Sorry Guys,

its not working. Earlier when I googled, I got the same solution. From that time onwards I am trying this, but no way out.

Faisal, as suggested I tried a few times just now, still the problem stand still.

Any other Idea??

Hi,

Try holding down ctrl+shift and then hit '6' and 'x' same time couple of times. Make sure the mouse courser stays with in

router/switch session.

Hi Guys,

     Ctrl + Shift + 6 or Ctrl + Shift + 6+x didnt worked on my PC.

But Ctrl+C+6 worked !!

I donno whether it depends on the keyboard or something, but it worked !!

Thanks everyone !

That's good news.  One less thing to worry about on a Friday.  Will try your commands on my next traceroute and see what happens.

Hi Sharone,

Ctrl+C+6

Worked on single time Entry rather than Ctrl + Shift + 6 or Ctrl + Shift + 6+x multiple  times

That's perfect.

CTRL + C + 6 works well.

Know this thread is old but Ctrl+c+6 worked on the emulator provided by Cisco (thank goodness :)

What Cisco device are you working on?

Hi Sharone,

Generally it depends on which terminal emulution  you use to connect to router...

Generally it is Ctrl+Shift+6 , but some also have Ctrl + 6; keep it pressed for lillte longer.
