SSH Timeout

If SSH timeout is bugging you, here is how to increase the timeout for the ssh shell:
On the Server:

sudo vim /etc/sshd_config
#add this line for server side keep alives every 60s:
ClientAliveInterval 60

On the Client:

sudo vim /etc/ssh_config
#add this line to send keep alives from client to server every 60s
ServerAliveInterval 60

Don’t forget to restart the ssh daemon where appropriate:

sudo /etc/init.d/ssh restart
