Finding the escape character

I find myself working in different terminal environments with different types of targets, something that sometimes gives me problems when trying to leave the target environment – how do I make that Escape character?

More often than not, I have opened a telnet session towards a target and has been greeted with the following message:

“Escape character is ‘^]’.”

I have found at least two different ways of making this escape character, depending on the environment I’m working in:

  • Ctrl+5
  • Alt+9
  • When I find more weird ways of producing this escape character, this blog post shall be updated.
