SSH timeouts across the board or per policy?

L4 Transporter

Are the application timeouts across the board for something like SSH?  Meaning for user SSH connections through the PAN and admin SSH connections to the PAN that application controls the timeouts for both?

SSH connection to firewall and ssh connection through the firewall have different config options for timeouts.

For SSH connection through the firewalls you can control the timeouts under object and services.

On the server, head over to the /etc/ssh/sshd_config configuration file. The Timeout value will be 1200 seconds * 3 = 3600 seconds. This is an equivalent of 1 hour, which implies that your ssh session will remain alive for idle time of 1 hour without dropping.

Usually, the SSH connection timeout occurs due to bad server settings, wrong IP hosts, firewall restrictions, etc. At Bobcares we often get requests to fix ssh timeout error, as a part of our Server Management Services.
