[pptp-server] Killing a specific VPN

Hi !
I have setup a POPTOP-Server.
Multiple Useres connect to me.
Sometimes there is a problem on some networks an one of the
PPTP-Connection dies.
But the interface and the pptpctrl-session stay alive.
Now I want to kill this specific task.

To test if the connection is alive I ping the other side regulaly.
I know the pid of the pppd-task but it is not enough to "kill -s 9
<pid>" or to "ifconfig pppx down"
The pptpctrl stays alive.

Can someone help ?
