Preventing SSH session timeouts
When accessing a remote server via SSH from a workstation connected to the internet via e.g. a NATed router setup, quite often the SSH will just hang after a short period of inactivity.
To prevent this, add the following lines to the SSH daemon config file (usually
KeepAlive yes ClientAliveInterval 30
and restart the daemon (a reload may not be effective).
Also note that the SSH session used to make the change to the SSH daemon may not benefit from the modified configuration.
