There is no way to kill "port sessions", only processes.

Find out which process is using the concerned port and kill this process.

Use "lsof" (if available) or "netstat" to retrieve the responsible processes.

i will be pleased if you provide the necessary commands so i can kill the processes using required ports
I don't know whether there is lsof on your system.

If so, to get the PID using e.g. port number 21 issue:

lsof -i:21

The PID is in the second column.

If your "netstat" supports the "-p" flag you can use:

netstat -pn |grep ':21 '
