 +How to close a telnet session on AIX or Cisco. ​
 +
 +== AIX ==
 +Do you also get this message when using telnet on AIX:
 +<​code>​
 +telnet 10.10.10.110 1059
 +Trying...
 +Connected to 10.10.10.110.
 +Escape character is '​^]'​.
 +</​code>​
 +And you can't get out? Press <​CTRL>​+5 followed by <​ENTER>​ to logout:
 +<​code>​
 +Escape character is '​^]'​.
 +
 +
 +
 +telnet> quit
 +Connection closed.
 +</​code>​
 +
 +== Cisco ==
 +To escape Cisco Telnet press  <​CTRL>​+<​SHIFT>​+6 at the same time and then "​x"​. This puts it in the background.
 +\\
 +You can go back to the session by simply hitting <​ENTER>​.
 +\\
 +When you're back on the command prompt you'll have to type "​disconnect"​ and confirm that you want to close the connection.
 +
 +In this example I open the telnet session, but it in the background, reopen it, put it in the background again and then close it. 
 +
 +<​code>​
 +coreswitch01#​telnet 10.10.10.100 53
 +Trying 10.10.10.100,​ 53 ... Open
 +
 +
 +coreswitch01# ​
 +[Resuming connection 1 to 10.10.10.100 ... ]
 +
 +coreswitch01#​disconnect
 +Closing connection to 10.10.10.100 [confirm]
