How can I stop an active network connection? e.g.,
Active Internet connections (w/o servers)
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address
tcp 0 0 192.168.0.100:ssh ip-72-55-146-217.:35911
Because barbarians are pounding at my sshd gate again:
. . .
Dec 2 16:41:37 helios sshd: Invalid user chad from 22.214.171.124
Dec 2 16:41:37 helios sshd: pam_unix(sshd:auth): check pass; user
Dec 2 16:41:37 helios sshd: pam_unix(sshd:auth): authentication
failure; logname= uid=0 euid=0 tty=ssh ruser=
Dec 2 16:41:39 helios sshd: Failed password for invalid user chad
from 126.96.36.199 port 42328 ssh2
. . .
I shut down my sshd daemon, but the network bandwidth did not drop. The
active connection went away in the netstat output, which is wrong, and
iftop was able to reveal the still-live connection.
