After running the 'show users' command in the Cisco IOS, it appears on one of our Cisco 3560 switches, I have a user who has been idle on 'vty 0' for many weeks (we don't reload the switches often).  What command can I run to disconnect them? I am currently logged in over telnet to vty1 - they are connected to vty 0

luc roy - What do you mean by suspended session?  I am not sure if I have a 'suspended' or 'idle' session?

as I stated in the begging:

edge01.lax01#show user
*Aug 21 16:22:18.959: %SYS-5-CONFIG_I: Configured from console by console
    Line       User       Host(s)              Idle       Location
*  0 con 0                idle                 00:00:00  
   2 vty 0                idle                 00:00:04 192.168.1.30

  Interface    User               Mode         Idle     Peer Address

edge01.lax01#clear line 2
[confirm]
 [OK]
edge01.lax01#show user
    Line       User       Host(s)              Idle       Location
*  0 con 0                idle                 00:00:00

just to add, luc roy provides a better solution as the VTY is the correct method for telnet/ssh sessions. I have just always used clear line # as it has always worked in the past. clear line # may not work on all versions, as it honestly applies to async lines.
