I've seen this sort of issue when the terminal through
with the connection was made is left idle. A solution
is to create a type of 'loop' script, which the person
would run upon building the tunnel on sshd server.

ie:
while true; do
echo Hello World
sleep 10
done

Then when finished working, ctrl-c to abort out, and
log off.
