RE: break sequence not working CS9000 -> Sun's

I have tried and tried but cannot get the \r~^b key sequence to cause a
break whilst connected to any of my servers using the CS9000's, however they
DO respond when I attach direct using a vt100 console!

The servers I tested (Netra's) do respond to a #. sequence to cause them to
drop to the LOM prompt, and from there I can do a reset but it's "just not

Even though I haven't got the "alternate break sequence" for Sun's working
yet, could you look at introducing the 0.5 second delays in the sequence as,
as I read it, they are needed.

i doubt the cs9000's are the problem.  i personally don't have an
alt-break setup to test with, but my best guess is that there needs to
be a 0.5 second delay between each character for this to work.  at
least, that's the info i'm seeing at sunsolve.  there is no delay in
the code.  so, the big test is, can you type <cr>,~,<ctrl-b> by hand
during a console session and get a machine to halt?  if so, it's
probably the delay issue.  unfortunately, there is no way to fix this
without some code changes.  but, if typing the sequence by hand doesn't
work either, something else is going on.  lemme know how it goes with
the test (it'll prove we *really* need that delay capability).
