Yes, this will likely break virt-p2v.

The default for ssh is to use TCP keepalives.  However those are very
infrequent (once every 2 hours IIRC), so it won't prevent a firewall
with such a short timeout from breaking virt-p2v.

Easiest thing here would be to fix the firewall.  15 minutes is a very
short timeout.  Doesn't that cause all kinds of problems for regular
SSH usage?
