Hello list,

I'm facing this unusual demand at work where we need to time out idle SSH connections for security purposes.

I've checked the following options from sshd_config but none seems to fit my needs :

Basically, I'm trying to defeat the use of the following client-side option:
ServerAliveInterval 5

I'm afraid all I've hit now is dead ends.

Has anyone ever had the same requirements before and, perhaps, found a solution to this ?
