Does not :-
Specifies whether the system should send keepalive messages to
the other side. If they are sent, death of the connection or
crash of one of the machines will be properly noticed. This op
tion only uses TCP keepalives (as opposed to using ssh level
keepalives), so takes a long time to notice when the connection
dies. As such, you probably want the ProtocolKeepAlives option as
well. However, this means that connections will die if the route
is down temporarily, and some people find it annoying.
The default is ``yes'' (to send keepalives), and the client will
notice if the network goes down or the remote host dies. This is
important in scripts, and many users want it too.
To disable keepalives, the value should be set to ``no'' in both
the server and the client configuration files.
and/or this :-
Specifies the interval at which SSH_MSG_IGNORE packets will be
sent to the server during dile periods. Use this option in
scripts to detect when the network fails. The argument must be an
integer. The default is 0 (disabled), or 300 if the BtchMode op
tion is set.
help ? I haven't checked the changes for Cygwin in the OpenSSH code so
I don't know whether these options should have an affect. Its
certainly easier than having to mess with the registry,
Your mouse has moved.
Windows NT must be restarted for the change to take effect.
Reboot now? [OK]
