It is not putty. try this from the UNIX command line:


Code:
echo $TMOUT

If that variable is set the shell will disconnect the session after TMOUT seconds of inactivity.

This is less a putty setting but more a configuration issue on the server side (sshd_config), if I remember correctly.

I am not sure if this helps, I never tested it myself, but PuTTY also has a feature using keepalives to prevent disconnection.

Try it and see if it helps.

Putty Configuration: Connection - set Seconds between keepalives to a value greater than 0 and check Enable TCP keepalives (SO_KEEPALIVE option).
