I want to have a stable ssh connection to a server where I do things. That would last for days or weeks.
In general, one can set TCP keepalive to more than 7200 seconds:
In MobaXterm, there are two checkboxes for maintaining a stable connection:
- Enable SSH keepalive (send data every 60 seconds to avoid disconnections)
- Workaround for "connection reset by peer" issue (stripped-down encryption algorithms list)
I used the first and my connection was "reset by peer".
Today I realised that I should use the second as well to keep my ssh connection alive for a day.
But what is this workaround ?
What this has anything to do with encryption algorithms ?
