Ok here is the situation, if I have a remote user (user1) logging in with a terminal emulation program like Anzio, and Anzio locks up, I need to be able to find the process number of his terminal login, kill and restart it, what is the correct way to search for user1's log in so iI can kill it.
Thanx in advance.

You should be able to get the info that you need from the output of who and ps.

try "ps -e | less" , or if you don't mind shutting down the whole service, try just restarting xinetd (or inetd) or whatever they are using to get to your machine "/etc/rc.d/init.d/xinetd restart".
