I have two machines which are both running RedHat 7.2 with
OpenSSH_3.1p1, SSH protocols 1.5/2.0, OpenSSL 0x0090602f
One machine is on the GT network and the other machine is local (inside
a SMC router/firewall.
Both machines were using a standard configuration (with KeepAlive), and
I'm using the same ssh client to access both machines.
The remote machine has always (consistently) dropped idle connections on
the client end - with the bash and ssh processes remaining alive on the
The local machine (same server configuration) and the Chebucto sshd
server have never dropped connections like this - same client.
This has finally got very irritating... ;-)
Fire away folks... ;-) I'm going out to cool dawn... ;-)
