tcpkill - kill TCP connections on a LAN

TCPKILL(8) System Manager's Manual TCPKILL(8)

NAME

tcpkill - kill TCP connections on a LAN

SYNOPSIS


tcpkill [-i interface] [-1...9] expression

DESCRIPTION


tcpkill kills specified in-progress TCP connections (useful for libnids-based applications which require a full TCP 3-whs for TCB creation).

OPTIONS

-i interface
Specify the interface to listen on.
-1...9
Specify the degree of brute force to use in killing a connection. Fast connections may require a higher number in order to land a RST in the moving receive window. Default is 3.
expression
Specify a tcpdump(8) filter expression to select the connections to kill.
