I'm looking for the command to disconnect another user's session.

    Line       User       Host(s)              Idle       Location
  162 vty 0                idle                 00:01:44 192.168.0.29
  163 vty 1                idle                 00:01:28 192.168.0.29
*164 vty 2                idle                 00:00:00 192.168.0.29

Looked around for the command but got impatient.

Hello,

This is what I get with "show users" in a telnet session.  I would like to disconnect #2 user, but "disconnect telnet 2" doesn't work.  What am I missing?

Thanks,
Susan
