Re: [vox-tech] ssh disconnects

I set TMOUT=0 on BASH and shell.sonic.net stopped kicking me out.  But I
recall trying that option previously on the local server so I think the
two might be unrelated.  Since I don't have access to the "local" server
(which isn't local at the moment and is down) I'll let you know how that
turns out with the -v ssh option, when I regain access to the server
around June or so. =P

Thanks Bill for your reply!


PS: My KeepAlive setting is currently set to default (on, according to the
manual.)  I don't mind disconnection on a bad connection; it's just that I
kept on getting kicked off when the connection was just fine.  KeepAlive
seems to be unrelated to this particular problem, but I'll keep it in mind
for future reference.
