Is there any option to set on a SSH client running on WIN XP(downloaded from SSH.com) to send a blank charecter every 5 min of inactivity? A script on the server kills the sessions that are not active for a time period. Any ideas of doing this how to do something that stops the session from being killed. Thanks.
Nicole, I'm not sure about SSH's client, but PuTTY has a feature that caters for this problem... Under the Connection section, it has a 'Sending of null packets to keep session active' option - you can modify the "Seconds between keepalives (0 to turn off)" ....maybe your client has something similar hidden in it's menus. Otherwise try PuTTY :-) (http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/)
