    Priviliged user as in root user? Yes, root can terminate any process on the machine.

    How are the people connected? Are you referring to someone running an IRC server, or FTP, or ????

    As to the command used, that would depend on the answer to the question above.

    A little more information will help us better answer your question.

    2 roots? Should never be more than 1 root

    As to how, issue the command

    kill PID

    where PID=process identificiation number of the ftp connection

    yup, root has absolute control of the machine and its resources.
