The simplest thing you can do to achieve this is 'broker.transport.loseConnection()'.

Of course, that just unceremoniously drops the connection.  You may want to have a 'remote_disconnect' method on the server too, if you have any state you would like to cleanly finish up with first.

Your GUI is already handling disconnection due to network problems though, right?  :-)  So the modification to make it handle this slightly-cleaner disconnect should be minor.  If it doesn't, see the notifyOnDisconnect API in PB: <http://twistedmatrix.com/documents/10.0.0/api/twisted.spread.pb.Broker.html#notifyOnDisconnect>.
