How do you shut down the simple web server? There are only instructions on how to start it, but not how to shut it down.

In the Teacher's Notes there is a link on how to Start a Simple Web Server. It tells you how to start one, but not how to shut it down. Seems dangerous. How do you stop it once it has started?

Your firewall and/or ISP don't allow anyone to access your test server but yourself, so there's nothing "dangerous" about running it.

You can easily stop it by interrupting Python by typing a Ctrl-C on the console.
