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

Stefan

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?

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.
