Default How to stop an active network connection


How can I stop an active network connection? e.g.,

$ netstat
Active Internet connections (w/o servers)
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address
tcp 0 0 ip-72-55-146-217.:35911

Because barbarians are pounding at my sshd gate again:

. . .
Dec 2 16:41:37 helios sshd[9201]: Invalid user chad from
Dec 2 16:41:37 helios sshd[9201]: pam_unix(sshd:auth): check pass; user
Dec 2 16:41:37 helios sshd[9201]: pam_unix(sshd:auth): authentication
failure; logname= uid=0 euid=0 tty=ssh ruser=
Dec 2 16:41:39 helios sshd[9201]: Failed password for invalid user chad
from 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.

Please help.
