Disconnect SSL VPN Users (manually)

Hello to all,


Due to the Corona crisis, I have several SSL VPN users who do not log out of the VNP after the work has ended.

How can I disconnect the user manual from the console from the VPN? I use a Sophos UTM SG 330.

  • The only way i know is disable / reenable SSL-VPN.

    ... or restart the service (don't know the name)

  • Here's the trick, but it has to be done as root at the command line.  At least this worked 8 years ago, so if someone tries this, please post your result back here.

    You can list active SSL VPN connections with:


    To disconnect user schweiger with IP

    chroot /var/sec/chroot-openvpn /usr/bin/ras_update.plx ssl disconnect username schweiger

  • If you want them all to be logged out at the same time then you can turn off and on again the SSL VPN profile and all active connections will be disconnected.
