You don't. The "service" for Classic is an open port being monitored by
the [x]inetd service (a daemon). When a connection request comes through
to xinetd from a client, xinetd starts a single process of fb_inet_server
for that client. A clean shutdown of this process occurs when the client
detaches from the database. This might not be immediate, if the attachment
has running transactions.

If a "dirty" shutdown of that process is required (not recommended!) the
process can be terminated with the kill command. You can identify the
process ID (PID) of active fb_inet_server processes using

ps -aux | grep fb
