Folks, I have been using SSH (secure shell) to open sessions to sun solaris servers in my work place, recently, I am running in to issues. If I keep the shell open for long, because of the IDLE_TIMEOUT setting my admin has put in, the connection terminates after 300 seconds. It is very annoying. To overcome this problem, I am running prstat to transfer some dummy data back and forth between the terminal and the server. If you have any other suggestions, please let me know in the comments section.. Much appreciated..
