I start telnet by
telnet host port. How do I stop it in Windows? Shockingly, Ctrl+C doesn't work.
^]means ctrl + right bracket. As strange as that is, it works. You'll be taken to the telnet prompt, where you can type
On international keyboards the ] character is often not a single key, and needs to be replaced with some other key. The correct key is typically the key to the right of P or the next key after that.
Here's a list based on comments below:
- Norwegian: ctrl + å
- Danish, Finnish, and Swedish: ctrl + ¨ [added by Fredrik C]
- French: ctrl + 6
- German, Turkish: ctrl + ü
- Swiss: ctrl + ¨
- Hungarian: ctrl + 5 or ctrl + ú
- Portuguese: ctrl + ´
- Dutch, Belgian: ctrl + $
- Canadian French: ctrl + ç
- Italian: ctrl + +

PS: Answer reproduced here for your convenience, since google took me to this question first, and none of the other answers here was sufficient for my case. The question How to send the escape character on OS X terminal? could be seen as a duplicate (more generic version) of this question, since the OP's problems are basically the same.
