Linux, How to shut down a network

I am using RHEL 6.x

I ran the following command from root

From within putty

[root@btvm1 sbin]# service network stop
Shutting down loopback interface:                          [  OK  ]
[root@btvm1 sbin]#
[root@btvm1 sbin]#
[root@btvm1 sbin]#

Open in new window

The putty did not stop, and I can still send and receive to the server from clients

It appears to have a problem with its configuration

Is there a simpler method of shutting down the network that will not involve modifying the configuration

Is there a better network shut down ocmmand

If not, how should I resolve this
