    Killing socket connection


    Guys,

    Is there any command in Linux to kill a socket connection WITHOUT killing its parent application? For example, I have streaming server with several connected users and I want to close socket connection to one of them?

    Thanks.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    The answer is "it depends". Each streaming client will have its own socket to the server. If the server has a "command" socket that can take a message to terminate one of the connections to it, that would be best.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
