Hi,

I tried logging out of telnet session to my Solaris 8 but always return with message saying 'command not found'!
Any idea?

'command not found' can also mean that you may be running a ".logout", which is not finding some file. if ^D and exit do not work, you can break the telnet connection with a ^[

What command do you try? Usual telnet command is "logout".

philiph_elvis,

I know you are new to EE, however, I have already proposed "exit".  Please remove your answer.  In the future, read the comments before blindly posting an answer.  Stealing other experts comments as an answer can get your account terminated...

Is it really exit? I've been telnetting into funny things (like DMS's) for too long now...

"exit" logs you out of Unix, which should break the network connection;

However, your telnet program may not terminate, and leave you with a "telnet>" prompt or similar; Try typing quit if you get this prompt.

If this doesn't work, I think we need to know what system you are telnetting FROM.

BTW, BSIM, rejecting philiph_elvis's "answer" will reopen the question to more input ;)

Well, to be technically correct "exit" just causes the current shell to exit. As mcrider suggests, this will log you out if the current shell is the login shell.
