su - login times out but $ login does not - why?
Posted on 2009-07-13
I login using ssh as a regular user then su - to gain root access. after 5 minutes unattended the # exits to $ and I have to log in again. This also happens to users who su admin. How can I stop this?
I have set the TCP_keepalive = yes.
System is RedHat 4 ELsmp, no firewall, nothing fancy in the way.
