How to disconnect a multiFlex user

I have two users connected to my 6600. One is my local connection which I am actively using and the other is a remote connection that was left on. Is there any way to force that second user off? I can't seem to find any method to kill the remote session other than shutting down my active connection to get to the initial SSDR and disconnecting it there. I went back through the manual but I don't see any other options.

If this concept was overlooked then I'd suggest that the perfect place to put this is under Settings, multFlex. Right click on the session and select disconnect. :-)

All you have to do is force a connection another client and seize the connection.

Correct. The point is  that I'm actively doing something and I want to dump a connection that exists but is not in use so that someone else can access the radio or maybe I want to add a third slice. I can't do that without disconnecting my active connection. Think of it as a client/server relationship. From a server I should be able to force a client connection offline without interrupting my activity.

If you see an orphaned connection (as in it exists,  but not in use and it is something you should not see) you start a new client you are given a choice as to which client you wish to disconnect if your 2 connections are already in use.

You can add a 3rd slice on any active client (assuming a 6500, 6600 or 6700) since they support more than 2.  

If you are seeing something different with V3, then you should open a support case so we can track it accurately.  

What has your testing shown?  Are you running V3 already as I could not see an order with your name on it.

Mike,  I think you are missing the point here.  Dave is saying he is already connected as a Client and there is another client (user) connection nailed up but Dave (the control op) wants to knock it down due to inactivity WITHOUT having to disconnect from his current radio session.   I believe that is what he is asking?    Been wrong before so......

Yes I am on version 3, not sure why can't see it but maybe it's because I purchased the radio in October so the upgrade was free?

I don't think you're following. As an example, my son and I are both using my Flex 6600. He's at his house and I'm at mine. I'm in the middle of a rag chew, running a net, making FT8 contacts or calling CQ contest. It doesn't really matter, I'm actively using my radio.  My son gets a call and has to run but forgets to disconnect. My father finds out that he had to run out and want's to login. The only way for me to clear my sons connection is disconnect the connection that I am actively using to clear the connection my son was using.  I don't know if that helped or made it worse :-)

Bottom line is that I don't want to interrupt what I am doing by closing my session to terminate another session that is no longer in use. It should be non-disruptive to what I'm doing.  In reality an icon on the screen showing the other user, maybe on the bottom right next to Station that you could click on and select disconnect would be the way to go but the first example I gave through the menu seemed logical to me too.
