Terminating the server in Ruby on Rails on Cloud 9

I have recently began the project 'Build a Simple Ruby on Rails Application' and am using Cloud 9 (c9.io) for my workspace. To terminate the server on a local host, Treehouse suggests that you use ctrl+c for a Mac or ctrl+pause/break for Windows. However, as far as Cloud 9 goes (which is suggested by Treehouse), I cannot figure out how to terminate the server. How can I do this?

when you start your server, it should spit out some info the the console. does that tell you to use ctrl c to stop the server as well or does it say something else
