Hi @protagonist

In that case, try editing a couple of files.

On the server edit /etc/ssh/sshd_config (using nano /etc/ssh/sshd_config for example). Find the line which says ClientAliveInterval and increase it to something like 600.

On the client edit /etc/ssh/sshd_config (using nano /etc/ssh/sshd_config for example). Find the line which says ServerAliveInterval and increase it to something like 600.

If those lines are not in the files already, just add them like this:

ClientAliveInterval 600

and this:

ServerAliveInterval 600
