Hi Darragh,

	You don't "pass the exit" to another console.

	Rather, do a:

	kill -9 PID

	where PID is the Process ID of the console (usually 'bash') process that you want to cause to "exit". You obtain the PID from the 'ps ax' commmand which will list PID's and lots of other info about all the processes runn
ing in your system.
