SUMMARY: STOP-A via (ssh!) terminalserver?

Hello managers,

sometimes i feel so silly... :(

I asked, how to send "STOP-A" from a normal pc-keyboard to a
lantronix-terminalserver that is reachable only via ssh.

The answer (that works for me) is very similar to the 
"telnet-reachable" lantronix:

telnet: ->  "Control_]"  and "send break"
ssh:    ->  "Control_\"  and "send brk"

(which i found out by looking into the "help" again, no longer
looking for "break" explicitely)

With regards,

Bernt Christandl


In the meantime several answers came in. My thanks to all of them!
Here they are, in timely order. I hadn't time to try they, yet.
