I've got a little TurnKey Linux Debian Squeeze VM that I use for SFTP. I had a user login and transfer a file the other day and now I can't seem to kill the session.
I'm still a little shaky in Linux but here are the symptoms:
"#netstat - tanp" shows the user with an established connection with a PID/Program name of 2603/sshd
"#kill -term 2603" runs successfully but...
"#netstate -tanp" shows the foreign address in "TIME_WAIT" with an additional entry of "ESTABLISHED" with the same foreign address
So it looks like something is restarting. I confirmed with the user that he's not actually connected.
Also tried restarting ssh and also rebooting the VM several times.
Any idea what's happening or how I can kill this?
