You can try to set a Keepalives setting on Putty.

Go to Putty -> Connections -> enter like 8 for "Seconds between keepalives"

Hope this helps!

What version of ESXi ?

Can you connect ?

if you use ping at the same time, does it drop any ping packets ?

Check if you have configured Shell time out in the host,

that can be checked in the Configuration ==> Software==> Advance settings ==> under userVars
