I’m using Amazon Linux,
[davea@mymachine ~]$ uname -a Linux mymachine.mydomein.org 4.4.35-45.83.amzn1.x86_64 #1 SMP Wed Jul 27 22:37:49 UTC 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
In my /etc/ssh/sshd_config, I have no value set for “ServerAliveInterval”. In this answer — What options `ServerAliveInterval` and `ClientAliveInterval` in sshd_config exactly do? , they say “Setting a value of 0 (the default) will disable these features so your connection could drop if it is idle for too long”. What does that mean? In precise terms, what is the default amount of time the connection will stay alive if this parameter is committed? Assume that I have set a value of “1000000000000” on the client side.
