Shouldn’t it instead be

ClientAliveInterval 30
TCPKeepAlive yes
ClientAliveCountMax 99999

To ensure the SSH session does not time out, you would want to edit the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file to ensure these settings are in place:

KeepAlive yes 
ClientAliveCountMax 99999```

After making those changes, please be sure to restart your SSH service using the command:

```service sshd restart```

If you only want to do it on a per session basis, you could just append this flag to your SSH command:

```-o ServerAliveInterval=100```

Hope it helps!
