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?
