Have you ever got ssh stuck?
For years every time I’ve wanted to close the ssh session I’ve used “kill” command – Guess what? no need to.
By pressing Enter followed by Shift~ and without leaving the Shift press “.”
More options available – Just press “?” instead of “.”:
root@vps:~# ~? Supported escape sequences: ~. - terminate connection (and any multiplexed sessions) ~B - send a BREAK to the remote system ~C - open a command line ~R - Request rekey (SSH protocol 2 only) ~^Z - suspend ssh ~# - list forwarded connections ~& - background ssh (when waiting for connections to terminate) ~? - this message ~~ - send the escape character by typing it twice (Note that escapes are only recognized immediately after newline.)
