Delete a TCP/IP connection via command line?

I have several TCP/IP connections from a Windows 2003 backup server to a server to be backed up that are related to the backup program Acronis. Acronis claims it cannot see the server in question and I think it might have something to do with all of these connections that are already showing to be open. I can see them with netstat, but I don't know how to close them without restarting the interface. How can I close them on the command line without affecting the other connections?

try:

net session \\your-ip-address /delete  

or

net use \\your-ip-address /delete

or open server management on the client and kill any sessions originating from your backup server.

For the TCP connection, there is no integrated tool to kill the session.
If it is a NetBIOS session, you can use net use or net session as  in dlb6597's post.
