Help to Avoid Idle Telnet Session Timeout
Posted on 2009-05-14
I have an AIX server with Oracle and will either Telnet (Powerterm) or SQLPlus to the server frequently.
My Network group recent switched my connection over to a new segment. Ever since then, my telnet session and SQLPlus sessions will timeout within a minute of idleness. It is this way for two of us in our office but one of us isn't having the problem. So it seems the issue is not with the OS. I am also using the same Powerterm config files for the session so it can't be my Powerterm configuration.
But that's not my question. Here's my question:
While I wait for the network guys to figure this out, I need to figure out how to keep my telnet session alive. I just can't work this way!
Is it possible to create something that the profile or the OS will execute every 30 seconds or so to keep a telnet session alive? Something that won't interfere with my work but keeps my session alive? Otherwise, I have to remember to press <enter> every 30 seconds or have to login again and again....
