How to Abort Traceroute Execution?

Hi,

     How can I abort the traceroute execution, when the IP route fails somewhere?

Type escape sequence to abort.
Tracing the route to 10.6.177.68

    10.148.64.1 4 msec
    10.148.50.73 4 msec
  2 10.148.65.1 4 msec 4 msec 8 msec

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.

it working for me

Thanks Jonathan! This solution worked for me. : )

I had similar problems with this not working. 

I'm using PuTTY terminal and the serial console.

My work-around is to use the keyboard's Right-Ctrl + Right-Shift + 6

Hi Sharone,

I've just had the same problem! As far as I know, the escape sequence should work (Shift + Ctrl + 6 + x). However, it didn't.

What I did is I waited it till it finished, went into global config and typed in the command:

no ip domain-lookup

This instructs the Cisco device to display I.P addresses as, well, I.P addresses! Without this command, the device will attempt to resolve the addresses to hostnames, which could take a little while.

Now that the command is in effect, I went back to privileged and did the traceroute again. It took only 2 seconds to complete the trace!

This might not be a solution to your (and my) problem, but I think it helps to have the trace finished in a matter of two seconds.

Cheers

After trying every combo in these forums I found:

SHFT+CNTL+6 works immediately, every time, BUT

I MUST USE the 6 key from across the top of the keyboard.  "6" from the Number Pad will not work.

 

Hope this helps someone.

I am in Cisco Modeling Lab 2 -- console session of a router:

the only sequence that worked was Ctl-6.

Thank You,
