Keep PuTTY SSH Sessions from Disconnecting

If you are using PuTTY to interact with your Linux Server(s) for extensive period of time and are frustrated due to disconnecting, when the SSH session turns idle for a certain amount of time (usually ~10 min). To overcome this problem, just use the keepalive feature of PuTTY!

Click on the Connection and enter the 30 (or whatever value which indicates the number of seconds) in Seconds between keepalives (0 to turn off) text box.

You are done, from now onward, the keepalive feature will prevent your SSH session from disconnecting.

Hope this will help you!

Please Remember me in your prayers!
