After issued command to stop pptpd, the pptpd won't stop until all the VPN client has disconnected. The following code shows pptpd is still running after issuing the stop command.
ubuntu@ip-10-138-31-87:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/pptpd stop Stopping PPTP: pptpd. ubuntu@ip-10-138-31-87:~$ ps -ef |grep pptpd root 5524 1 0 21:46 ? 00:00:00 pptpd [<myIp>:8544 - 0000] root 5525 5524 0 21:46 pts/1 00:00:00 /usr/sbin/pppd local file /etc/ppp/pptpd-options 115200 192.168.0.1:192.168.0.234 ipparam <myIP> plugin /usr/lib/pptpd/pptpd-logwtmp.so pptpd-original-ip <myIP> ubuntu 5564 4668 0 21:50 pts/4 00:00:00 grep --color=auto pptpd
After all the active vpn client connections were disconnected mannually, the pptpd then stops. Is there a way that pptpd can be forced to stop even there are active vpn client connections?
