Hello @edivaldovictor

Can you share more about the configuration and what ssh-client/console are you using?

This error can occur due to session timeout for inactivity or memory-related issue and so on.

Hi @edivaldovictor,

So, you were getting  {“errors”:“SSH CONNECTION LOST”} when you were trying to SSH or were you getting the error when you just minimized your terminal and opened it a little after that?

If it’s the second, usually terminals do time out when you don’t do anything and just leave them like that. To set the SSH keep-alive option on the server edit the file /etc/ssh/sshd_config. Add the line ClientAliveInterval 60. Afterwards restart the service service sshd restart.
