I asked how I can free up a port that is being held open by a remote
connection, as evidenced by the output from netstat -A:
ff68000c tcp 0 96 stis.70 184.108.40.206.15669 CLOSING
Apparently, Matt Crawford (firstname.lastname@example.org) is the expert on
this, because he immediately sent me the following cryptic, but
adb -w /vmunix /dev/kmem
then wait up to 2 minutes.
I have great faith in advice from the net, so I su'd to root and typed
this in. Immediately the "CLOSING" went to "CLOSED" and eventually (i
think a bit more than 2 minutes) the entry disappeared, and I was able
to re-start my Gopher server.
