I'm really enjoying the Solar putty client. However, when I step away from my desk the Putty Connection closes.
I'm left with a picture of the 2 gears underneath it says "Network (reboot)!" and below that is the blue reconnect button.
How can I stop Solar putty from closing the sessions when I'm afk.
Please assist and advise on this matter
I think that the disconnection is caused by the remote server. A session left idle will disconnect at a time determined by the host server. Try enabling keep-alives. This causes PuTTY to send null SSH packets to the remote host periodically, preventing the session from timing out. The client can be configured to always establish a connection which will not time out due to inactivity. To create and save a new keep-alive connection, follow these steps:
If your connected sessions still time out, enter a lower number of seconds into the "Seconds between keepalives" value.
