- How does tcp-keepalive work in ssh? 1 answer
I've been looking around stackoverflow and it seems that SSH connections will disconnect when it doesn't see any packets for a while (2 hours?). Also, I looked in my /etc/ssh/ssh_config file and there doesn't seem to be anything there that would persist my current connection.
My question is: Even after 48 hours, why would a SSH connection persist? (my computer is turned off, but the server that I SSH to is presumably still online)
