How to kill a session on a Cisco PIX/FWSM

Completely different from Cisco IOS, so hard to remember:

Log into the PIX/FWSM and go to “enable” mode. Do a “who”:

Choose the IP of the session you want to kill and grab the number. In this case I want to kill the “” session, so I want “2”. Then kill it:

The target session will then drop.

Note if you’re coming from the same IP it may make it harder because the sessions will reference the same IP. In that case, just assume the later session has a higher number (or conversely, the earlier session has a lower number).

Be careful. I have no idea what this does is you’re in mid-access-list update.
