I've got a little TurnKey Linux Debian Squeeze VM that I use for SFTP. I had a user login and transfer a file the other day and now I can't seem to kill the session.
I'm still a little shaky in Linux but here are the symptoms:
netstat - tanpshows the user with an established connection with a PID/Program name of
kill -term 2603runs successfully but...
netstat -tanpshows the foreign address in
TIME_WAITwith an additional entry of
ESTABLISHEDwith the same foreign address and a new PID
Lather, rinse, repeat.
I confirmed with the user that he's not actually connected (he in fact uninstalled the SFTP client on his side).
I also tried restarting ssh and rebooting the VM several times and it pops back up as ESTABLISHED.
Any idea what's happening or how I can kill this?
