SSH Connection drops offline after a few minutes of no activity
Whenever I’m connected to my droplet through SSH and stop using it for a few minutes, it drops offline and I get the message “broken pipe”. It doesn’t seem to be associated with any sort of time limit, but more to do with how much time there is between activity. For example, I am often going between the terminal and the #Laravel chat room for help, but if I’m gone for too long it’s disconnected when I get back. Is there anything I can do to avoid this?
