SSH Escape Sequences — Escaping the Frozen SSH Connection
Dev tip 8/99
Ever have an SSH connection to a remote server freeze because the internet died or you switched from wifi to wifi? In the past I would shut down the terminal window and create a new one because I lost control of the one with
ssh. Then I found out about the
ssh escape sequence
ssh freezes, now I type the sequence
<return>~. and I regain control of my terminal. That sequence forces SSH to disconnect from the server!
