Thanks to all who have replied:
Overwhelmingly the correct answer is ^q, with the most detailed answer
^s is also the flow control character XOFF, used to stop transmission if it
coming too fast. Most all systems use hardware rather than this software
control, but the vestiges of the support for it still remain.
^q, the XON character should get it started again.
however in this particular case it does not appear to be working.
Thank you all,
I have a public web server that is locked down so that the only way
to access a command prompt is through the console port. The problem is when
I was last in the system when I went to logout using ^d I inadvertently hit
something else ( possibly ^s ) and now I have no access to the system. Is
there a way to free this or do I need to reboot it?
