Hi, I’ve been trying to figure this out for a bit now, if I leave my windows preview terminal open, while SSH’d into a Ubuntu droplet for a certain amount of time (looks like 5 minutes of not using the terminal can be used to reproduce this) it stops letting me type into the terminal. I googled this and came to the conclusion it’s the session timing out. I saw a thread on superusers saying putting this in etc/ssh/sshd_config this should fix it:
#ClientAliveInterval 30 TCP #KeepAlive yes #ClientAliveCountMax 99999
but it did not fix it and I still “timeout” in 5 minutes or less. (I don’t know if i’m timing out, just I cannot input anything into the terminal and I have to relog back in)
