In response to your original email, if lftp backgrounds, the crude way
of stopping it is "killall lftp".
If you'd rather lftp didn't background in the first place, I recommend
adding "set cmd:move-background no" to ~/.lftp/rc
You seem to indicate the traffic continues even if the lftp process
has been killed? First of all, I think "ps -ef | grep fxp" isn't the
best command. You should be grepping for lftp, not fxp (you won't
necessarily always have "fxp" in your lftp commands) . Even if you
manage to kill lftp, I'm not sure that you can stop the transfer from
your computer because the two servers independently negotiate the tcp
transfer. But I'm not too familiar with the details of fxp.
If lftp changes to "[Receiving data->Sending data]" it probably means
one or both of the servers don't allow fxp. lftp must then route the
traffic through you're connection to make it work. Talk to the server
admins to get fxp enabled.
