Linux, How to shutdown network

I am using RHEL 6.x, and from a previous thread I used the following 2 commands to attempt to bring down the network (any clients outside of the box):

From a putty session, I tried the following 2 commands:

-bash-4.1$ service network stop
-bash-4.1$ /etc/init.d/network stop

Open in new window

The putty session did not die, and I can ping and have clients send and receive to / from the box

How should I investigate the cause of this?
