Yep does that all the time the worst is on a traceroute where it seems you need to wait for the end of line to send the ctrl+shift+6.
Workaround on cisco:
Line con 0
 Escape-character 3
Line vty 0 4
 Escape-character 3

Whith this you can just CTRL+C

Hi Guys,


If anyone can tell me how to resolve this issue there's a strong possibility
of a fedex'd beer. 


Using Putty or any other ssh/telnet terminal I find that Ctrl+Shift+6 then X
(on a cisco) works only sometimes after beating your keyboard multiple times
with a hammer, has anyone else come across or had a solution to this problem
