    That depends if you use a DSL modem/router with a permanent connection or a gateway PC that is responsible for the dialup and the routing of the connections to the Internet. Most modem/routers block the access to their configuration interface to outside IP addresses not in their LAN subnet mask, making it impossible to "shutdown" the connection from outside.

    If you use a Linux router, you have to forward the telnet/SSH port to the router, connect through SSH from outside and tell the linux PC to cut the connection.
