I’ve just got a Skywire modem cape for the BBB. I’m trying to send an SMS. Everything goes well until I try to enter CTRL+Z to end the SMS text entry and nothing happens. (I’ve done this SMS send method from a PC before so I know the general proceedure). I’ve tried Minicom on the BBB and Picocom. I’ve tried it logging into the BBB via SSH terminal and via the Cloud9 terminal. All fail to send the CTRL+Z character.
Anyone come across this before? Is there a terminal emulator mode to set or such like?
I would direct connect to the BBB debug serial port to get a terminal but the connector is not accessible with the cape fitted - doh!
Sounds like you need to configure the ssh client you’re using to allow ctrl + z.
CTRL + Z is job suspend in bash, probably dash also. If you are connected via ssh to the BBB when you are ready to input the CTRL + Z, use CTRL + V, then CTRL + Z. This works with other CTRL sequences in bash also, ala CTRL + J. Mike

Not arguing against this point, but puTTY seems to just process ctrl + z straight off. I had noticed in the far distant past that other clients behave differently. Such as I think OpenSSH - which I have not used in a long, long time.
