By default, most SSH servers have set a timeout to disconnect idle clients. After idling for some time, your connection is dropped.
To make the keep alive settings available for all connecting clients, it is recommended to configure the settings in server side.
Modify the /etc/ssh/sshd_config and add the following lines :
After setting this, you have to restart the SSH server by issuing this command :
sudo service ssh restart
Note that restarting SSH server will not disconnect existing connecting clients via SSH.
