RE: red hat firewall question



Yes, and it works great for SSH, but nothing else. I have users connecting
to 20 different applications on these servers and they are being timed-out
after only a 1 minute or so of inactivity. 

I know there is a kernel tweak that might work for this, so I'm researching.


thanks

Anne

Have you tried setting the following options in your servers' sshd_config
files?

KeepAlive yes
ClientAliveInterval 60
