As Michal F. Hanula, it might be due to the firewall dropping idle TCP connections. At work I use PuTTY (http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/) for my outbound ssh sessions, and it supports a useful option: "Sending of null packets to keep session active" Settings this to, say, 60 seconds effectively prevents my sessions from being cut off. Unfortunately I haven't found any similar feature in the OpenSSH clients. Do they support such a feature? -- Christian Stigen Larsen -- http://csl.sublevel3.org -- mob: +47 98 22 02 15 _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
