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

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.
Thanks for your suggestion, hmmmm but its not working here
I had tried earlier also; and now as suggested, early in the process. Still its not stopping.
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??
Try holding down ctrl+shift and then hit '6' and 'x' same time couple of times. Make sure the mouse courser stays with in
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.
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.
