How to break/abort the "traceroute" of "ping" command on CISCO?

By default, CISCO's router or switch will try and traceroute up to 30 hops before exiting the "traceroute" command or will send 5 ping packets before exiting the "ping" command. many time you find yourself in a situation where you want to abort the command, may be because you typed the wrong address or when the "traceroute" can't even resolve the gateway.

Try one of these escape sequences to abort.

Abort CISCO's traceroute or ping

1. ctrl + 6
2. ctrl + alt + 6
3. ctrl + shift + 6
