The VPN for work recently changed so that idle sessions get dropped after
30 minutes. Not the vpn connection itself just the ssh sessions within it.
I've played with the keep alive option in PuTTy 0.54 and on the Windows
version it seems to work and my sessions stay active but when trying the linux
version of PuTTy setting that option doesn't seem to work.
I've also tried the following from my linux box with openssh
ssh -2 -o 'TCPKeepAlive=yes' email@example.com
It doesn't give me any errors and in the man page it looks like a valid option,
but it's not working either.
$ ssh -V
OpenSSH_3.8.1p1, OpenSSL 0.9.7d 17 Mar 2004
Does anyone have any ideas on how I can keep my sessions active without having
to work from my Windows system and run PuTTy there? OpenSSH would rock but
even just figuring out why they linux PuTTy doesn't behave like the Windows
version would be fine.
