i wanted to send an signal to interrupt which is normally ctrl+c, but nothing happened. I tried typing ^c, ^C, and ^[c (option+c generates this one), but nothing worked..

Hi @rahil627,

You are correct, it’s ctrl+c. Having said this, sometimes it takes some time for the Droplet to receive the signal and stop the job it’s executing, it’s often experienced when it’s a job that requests more computing power.

  • heyo!

    ahhhhh, okay. thanks so much for the quick response. wow!.. in my particular case, the job didn’t require much power: just Dropbox constantly yelling at me to go link the device 😩, with no way to stop it 😭.

    i dig the browser terminal feature though! Termius(?) the iOS terminal app often disconnects after switching apps, whereas the browser tabs stays connected. that’s really rad!, and, you know, it’s convenient.

    • Hi @rahil627,

      Ah, yes that’s another situation where you’ll be having trouble stopping the job. Anyway, I’m glad you managed to figure it and that you like the console!
