How Can I Boot Another Aol User Off?

Mon Sep 15, 2003 1:06 pm

All 3 of us in the house have aol on the same acccount but we all have different usernames.

one of us here is always leaving his acct logged on. He forgets to log off. So no one else can log into AOL.  Sad

Is there a way we can cause him to lose his connection? I mean, often times I 'll get kicked off aol when it says" remote connection has been reset by host" or something like that.

Is there a way to toogle his connection off without having to go downstairs and logging off his account?

thanks!

Unless you know his password, I don't think you can.


too bad punters were the thing of the past when aol 5.0 was introduced...

When you attempt to sign on, there will be a telephone number listed that you can call for help.

Find the phone box coming into your house. A short disconnection should do the trick.

If you are on dial-up all you have to do is pick up a phone, and start pressing the clicker up and down, over and over again until the connection disconnects and you get a dial tone. I used to do that to my mom all the time when I was younger and we only had dial up.

If you have call waiting and don't turn it off, just call the number the modem is connected to...

Here's a thought. If you have the master user name tell him you'll be deleting his next time it happens, then do so. If he has the master though, he could just delete you.
