I just checked the man page for s_server (on linux) and it mentions
something about exiting.

"Certain single letter commands are also recognized which perform
special operations: these are listed below.

       q   end the current SSL connection but still accept new connections.

       Q   end the current SSL connection and exit."

Can a command "Q" be sent to the server once testing is complete?
