Thread: How to ?

  1. How to ?

    Configure the SSHD daemon process to disconnect users after X number of
    minutes of inactivity?? Linux OS.

    I'm seeing the following:

    root 14944 15340 0 13:03 ? 00:00:00 sshd: mrvaliduser [priv]
    544 14946 14944 0 13:03 ? 00:00:27 sshd: mrvaliduser@notty

    They seem to hold onto the process table for an indefinate time period :-((

    thanks ahead of time

    I don't know how to do that, but it seems to me that, even if you
    find out how to do it, you might not achieve what you want. You see, in
    an SSH connection the client is in the driver's seat. As it happens, it
    is easy to configure OpenSSH clients so that, effectively, they are never
    inactive. This would get around any timeout-based mechanism that the
    server might implement.

    thanks K

    I got a few drivers that don't want to change bad/insecure behaviors
