This is more of a Windows issue, nothing to do with HP-UX.  What doesn't work?

 

>2 I use below command for force logout an user from server but when I copy this command to other terminal, not work?

ps -u username | while read PID b c; do kill -9 $PID; done

 

In general you should never first use kill -9.  You should do a normal kill first.

What doesn't work, the copy or the kill script fragment?

I use putty and don't have problems with cut&paste between it and Windows.

 

>in 2 case I don't want to one by one process... This command works when I load that from history (Esc and /) but when I type or copy that it doesn't work.

 

Instead of typing newlines, use semicolons as I had above:

ps -u username | while read PID b c; do kill -9 $PID; done

 

Or better yet, put it in a script.
