10.4: Avoid dropped connections due to idle timeouts
Authored by: dougw2112 on Dec 26, '05 05:58:04AM

You may know this already, and if you do then you can skip this comment.

You may have two events taking place here. 1) your ISP may be dropping you, I don't know anything about that, but 2) SSH by default disconnects the connection as a security feature. Most every SSH tool provides a keep alive function for just this reason. If you use emacs as an editor, turning on the "time" function is handy because it will pool the time every minute. Not perfect but it does provide some success.
