Assuming you are using telnet on unic, when you are logged on to the remote
host, you can enter the escape ^] (thats control right bracket) , that should
take you back to the telnet> prompt, which you can enter ^z to stop the
job to return to the local machine. To get back, you type fg to bring
the stopeed job back to the foreground, hit return and you should be back
on the remote machine.

Good Luck
