When we got a new connection here in our office, I was losing my ssh
connections to our server all the time. I changed a few settings (on the
servers and the client) and thins improved a lot:
~# cat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_keepalive_intvl
~# cat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_keepalive_probes
~# cat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_keepalive_time
Still lose a few connections, but not nearly as frequently.
