How are you talking to the machine?  Is it on the same LAN segment as 
the host you're connecting from?  (guessing you're using telnet or ssh)

If you're going through some kind of router, esp a NAT one, your 
connections me be dropped when idle, unless you're sending some kind of 
keep-alive packets.
