SSH session terminates unexpectedly
Posted on 2011-03-21
I am using SSH to connect to an Ubuntu 10.04 LTS virtual machine running on top of VMWare ESXi. When installing programs or initiating some X11 screens, the SSH session abruptly terminates and breaks the connection. This does not happen to all program installations or X11 screens, but it will consistently happen to many unrelated screens.
Are there any suggestions on what might cause this problem or ways I might diagnose the cause?
