Hi Alain,

you could try to install lsof and find out which process is locked to the user.

Hello Alain,

you can kill the connection with
#fuser -ku /dev/pts/0

Thank you for these answers
Sorry Stephan, the result of fuser seems ineffective in that case

#fuser -ku /dev/pts/0
/dev/pts/0:

#who
root pts/0 May 20 14:07
myself pts/1 Jun 2 13:40

I try to install lsof.
