I tried kill and the process id which I found using pidof iptraf but it won;t stop the program.
There's always the risk of losing the SSH connection while running something. You should use something like the screen command (man screen), so you can resume when you reconnect. You can try to force the kill by using "kill -9 <PID>" -- just drop the quotes and replace <PID> with the actual PID you got from pidof.
