Recently I had an issue connecting to the remote server via SSH that for some reason was not responding to commands.
Communication looked like this:
miro@mresetar:~$ ssh -l root 10.99.98.136 email@example.com's password: Last login: Wed Feb 26 08:52:20 2020 from 192.168.126.233 exit Connection to 10.99.98.136 closed.
Did you notice that after command
exit SSH didn’t exit the connection?
Ctrl + D too but without luck.
I might just close the terminal and open a new one, but sometimes, as in this time, you want to keep history of executed commands.
So what to do? Of-course Google-it :). Few links away is always helpful StackExchange with, in this case, Super User group. Answer was: How do I exit an SSH connection?.
Solution: Simple. Use keys
Enter~.. Depending on the keyboard layout for the
~ sign you might enter 2 keys.
For my keyboard this is
Alt Gr + 1.
And that’s it. After this key stroke sequence, message
Connection to 10.99.98.136 closed. is printed.
One terminal (and history) saved :)
