TCPDROP(8)              FreeBSD System Manager's Manual             TCPDROP(8)

NAME
     tcpdrop - drop a TCP connection

SYNOPSIS
     tcpdrop laddr lport faddr fport

DESCRIPTION
     The tcpdrop command drops the TCP connection specified by the local
     address laddr, port lport and the foreign address faddr, port fport.
     Addresses and ports can be specified by name or numeric value.

EXIT STATUS
     The tcpdrop utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.

EXAMPLES
     If a connection to httpd(8) (ports/www/apache2) is causing congestion on
     a network link, one can drop the TCP session in charge:

           # sockstat -c | grep httpd
           www      httpd      16525 3  tcp4 \
                   192.168.5.41:80      192.168.5.1:26747

     The following command will drop the connection:

           # tcpdrop 192.168.5.41 80 192.168.5.1 26747
