The "Aedh0ed" is your encrypted password which the server uses to
authenticate you!

If you want to keep track of connections to your server you could do
it through the "tcpserver" which spawns the server - I guess you use
inetd??? At we use the tcpserver from D. J. Bersteins
ucspi-tcp package ( Through this you are capable of
setting a various limits on the connections along with logging the
connecting IP's plus the pid of the spawned server. So I guess that
you could kill a connection by killing the corresponding pid...
