Cronos - Admin site getting stuck

I know this is an older machine, but I was working through Cronos and kept running into issues with the admin.cronos.htb site becoming unresponsive if I messed up something with my reverse shell, or even if I typed in something incorrect in the traceroute/ping commands in the Net Tool interface.

To me it looked like an issue where the web app is synchronous or something, so if you can’t close out the terminal connection, or it gets stuck running a command you’re just SOL. Is this an issue anyone else has run into / are there ways to work around it that I’m just not aware of?
