Hi Arturo, this is not specific to Terminator if I've understood you.

Terminator is a GUI wrapper around one or more VTE widgets. VTE = Virtual Terminal Emulator. Within that VTE a program (bash by default) is run. You talk about a "connection" where I assume you mean a following call to ssh to another machine (or something similar). In this case the ability to break a connection is entirely up to the ssh program making the connection, and you would have to consult the man page for ssh (or other commands) to find how to break a connection. Ssh has <Return>~. (return, tilde, dot/period) to break a connection, although I'm not sure if that works when the connection has hung.

Can you help with this problem?
