Unable to enter command because of daemon job on startup

Good day

I have a application that startup as a daemon when the system boot-up. My problem is that it display that this application is running and nothing else is happening then. I am unable to enter any commands. I have tried all kind off key presses but cannot get to the prompt.

First off all why will this happen and then is there a way to get to the prompt without accessing the system with the network?

Thank you.

What daemon are you running? If it's a command that you run which invokes daemon then you need to put & at the end of the command to send it to the background so you can get your prompt back.
