SSH Session terminates after one hour (even when active)
Posted on 2006-06-02
I'm running a Red Hat 7.2 server and the latest open-ssh server.
When I ssh into my server (whether from Win XP using PuTTY, or from an AIX box at work), my session is terminated on the first even 10 minutes after one hour even if I am in the middle of something like vi'ing a file.
It's as if some process is cronned to run or check for ssh sessions every 10 minutes and if a session is found that is over one hour it terminates the session.
I don't think it's anything related to my ssh config, I think it is something else, but I can not figure it out... Please help!
In case it helps, here is my sshd_config:
Subsystem sftp /usr/local/libexec/sftp-server
