In this example, a telnet session is initiated from R3 to R2.

A couple of quick commands are ran from the telnet session.

R2>enable
Password:R2#show run | sec router
router ospf 1
log-adjacency-changes
network 10.0.0.0 0.255.255.255 area 0

The ctrl + shift + 6, x shortcut key is issued to suspend the telnet session.

R2#
R3(config)#

Issuing the do resume 1 command from R3 will resume the telnet session to R2 that was suspended.

A quick cycle through the command buffer shows some of the commands that were typed before suspending the session.
