Re: Putty don't allow me to use CTRL + ]
The escape character `CTRL + ]' is usually used to get the attention
of the local Telnet client, to do things such as setting options.
PuTTY doesn't have an equivalent of this key, as you can get its
attention using GUI widgets (pull-down menus, etc); it doesn't treat
that key combination as special and passes it through to the remote
You shouldn't normally need to use a Telnet escape to log out -- it's
usually better to tell the server you want to log out (on Unix,
usually `logout' or `CTRL + d'). That said, the equivalent of logging
out using a Telnet escape would be to press the Close (`[X]') button
on the PuTTY window.
