Managing Sessions (IIS 6.0)

There might be times when you need to manage or monitor sessions as an administrator. You can terminate a session or all current sessions, or you can enumerate users. For example, if a specific user is posting inappropriate messages to an unmoderated newsgroup, you can terminate the session for that user.

You can manage sessions in IIS Manager or by using the Rsess.vbs command-line script. To manage sessions in IIS Manager, right-click the session, and then click the appropriate action.
