HOW TO: Kill Existing Sessions on the Portserver CM

 

  • Killing any session from the CM command line. 
    ps ax | grep ttyS# [# equals the actual port number]. 
    kill -9 [ttyS# PID]

     

  • Killing any active sessions from the WEB UI. 
    Under "Administration" select "Active Sessions". 
    Select the session and click "Kill Session".

     

  • Killing the telnet session you are currently on. 
    Type the "^]" [control-right square bracket] which is the default telnet escape characters.
    • If the telnet was initiated from the CM, or if you are using a menu. You will be prompted with options to end, suspend, etc.
    • If the telnet was initiated from an outside source. Issuing the telnet escape will take you to the "telnet>" prompt where you type "quit".

       

  • Killing the ssh session you are currently on. 
    Type the "~." [tilde-dot] which is the default ssh escape characters.
