Thanks, Kevin. This may well work with the SSH, but it's actually disconnecting all my clients, telnet, Oracle, etc. There is a config for telnet, but nothing for Oracle (that I know of). Also, ldap, etc. It's the strangest thing!!

Does anyone have any idea why this might be happening? I recently had trouble with this issue after a change in service providers between my office and some servers, although, IIRC, it was more than just one minute until the disconnect. Adding this to /etc/ssh/sshd_config on the servers seems to have fixed the issue: ClientAliveInterval 30 ClientAliveCountMax 10 HTH, Kevin Kinsey -- I should have been a country-western singer.
