Putty disconnects after sometime

i am using Putty to do ssh to all the unix nodes that we have in our work environment. it is very strange that all my network connections will timeout quickly in 10 mins, it can either be a putty connection, sqlplus or toad. is there some setting that can help to prevent this. please let me know if you need more information.

Here's the problem. On your server side, there is a timeout for no - activity.

In Putty ( 0.60 ), there is a setting under the Category - Connection, that is # seconds between keepalives - Mine is set to 300 seconds.

I don't remember if Toad has a similar feature.

Good Luck.
