Hi mslibrarycommission,
You can't, they will disconnect automatically. You may want to reconfigure your firewall if you dislike visitors from Bejing, though.
Enjoy,

There is nothing strange about a TIME_WAIT connection.  Its perfectly normal.  As stefan73 suggested, they will go away on their own.  This is a short description of what the TIME_WAIT state is:

SO, the ONLY way to refuse or drop that connection is at the firewall?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Yes, firewall is the best way.

Firewall on the Solaris box ?  If you are using Solaris 10, it comes with IPFilter.  Solaris 9 and below work very nicely with IPFilter added.
