Windows – How to exit telnet


I start telnet by telnet host port. How do I stop it in Windows? Shockingly, Ctrl+C doesn't work.

It should have printed something along the lines of:

Escape character is '^]'.

Since ^X is CtrlX, try Ctrl] for ^].

You should then enter the telnet console, where you can enter quit to leave telnet.
