How To Increase SSH Connection timeout

Do you get annoyed when you have a SSH session open, visit your browser for a while, and then return only to find you were disconnected? So, to avoid this ...

Open /etc/ssh/ssh_config on your (client) computer. Add the following line:

ServerAliveInterval 180

Just remember this -- if you leave SSH open accidentally, anyone else can get on it. Remember to close your session when finished.

I am an 82 year old dummy that would like to find a way to get rid of the ubuntu 10.04 password timeout. I am not worried about security in my home. I do not use the terminal mode. Would someone show me a simple way to remove the password timeout.

Thank you in advance.
