If I use

To give out a remote command on a server, and I kill the SSH connection after 10 seconds, then I can see that the
sleep 20 is still running on the server, but there is no SSH connection.
How can I kill the remote command after a timeout, say 10 seconds?
The remote machine is AIX 6.1 (or SLES) and no package is available for "timeout". My client is Ubuntu 10.03.
