If you mean to exit from the ftp session, use



Or do you want to do something to the PC so that you cannot get to mu-94.servegame.com at all?

I'm still not clear on what you want to do.
Do you want to disable the FTP server itself? Just stop the FTP publishing service, or whatever service you have installed that includes the ftp server, like VxWorks..

if you want to disable accessing this server you can download this neat software - 1st security agent, which has a checkbox for each user to disable a certain feature in the windows registry - ie desktop restrictions. tick this for whichever users apply and logout or you can block the ftp server ip address using most firewall software - go to resticted zones/blocked address type it in click ok, when logged on as administrator into you fw software, logoff and all other users will not be able to access it

Hope this helps.

If you simply want to disable the abilty for people to connect to FTP on your sever, and you are running Windows you may just disable the service.

You can follow the steps from MS (http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb%3Ben-us%3B321141) to turn off IIS first.
