joe Joe Mc Cool *pts/2 Sep 7 13:40 (xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx)
that last entry is me, having forgotten to log off from my office machine while sshing to this box. (ip address xx'd)
how do I kill off this user and all his processes ?
ps -t *pts/2 reports:
ERROR: TTY could not be found etc
therefore I don't know what processes to kill.
BTW, what do the *'s represent ? According to man finger they represent denial of write access. But this is definately not the case here.
