How to disable one reverse telnet at a time? (cisco routers aux to con)

Ok, my computer is connected with a regular console cable to Router1. Router1 has a reverse telnet from its AUX port to Router2 con, and Router 2 has a reverse telnet from its AUX port to Router 3.

So I console into Router1, then console into Router2, then console into Router3.

Everything works, the problem is once I've consoled into Router3, I can't get back into Router2. If I hit ctrl +shift + 6 + x then it goes straight back to Router1. As soon as I resume the connection back to Router2, it gives me Router3 access because obviously that console connection is still active.

How can I shut them down separately?

As you've noticed ctrl+shift+6 and x takes you all the way back.

There's no way to jump one "hop" back while still keeping the session active. Your best choice is using exit or logout from the last router to go one step back, and then reopen the connection if you want to go back out to the last router again.

IIRC, You cannot selectively terminate nested reverse telnet sessions. Typing "exit" will not terminate the current "leg" of the session.

Bottom line, don't do nested reverse telnet sessions.
