How to keep my SSH connections open?
I have a dedicated server with … another web host. I can log in using SSH, start up a vim or two, fool around, rapid prototype, etc., then come back the next day (or week) and that SSH connection is still open, and my dev environment is still there.
With DO, a SSH connection to my Droplet closes after about 2-3 hours, and certainly won’t last over night.
Is there a setting somewhere to keep SSH connections open?
