I used IFTP with a private user/password to my site. After doing
several FTP operations, I used IFTP /C to close the connection but it
automatically re-connected when I did something like DIR FTP:

For security reasons, I need to be able to have some way to close the
connection so it can't come back. What's the way to do that?

Alias it to something like:

alias closeftp=*iftp /c & iftp ftp://foo.bar >& nul

The second iftp (to a bad address) will overwrite the saved ftp address
from the first iftp.
