Reddit: Why would SSH'ing into another machine auto log out the original after a random amount of time?

Thursday 15th of January 2015 09:57:56 AM

At work we use linux and when we need to process computationally heavy things we ssh into one of the two more powerful computers so they can continue being used by the user but we can use the graphics cards.

Recently however we have been getting issues that while we're ssh'ed into the machines our computer (not the one we are trying to take advantage of) is getting completely logged out of our current session (and I don't mean out of the ssh I mean completely out of our computer all unsaved work gone everything).

This can happen after 5 minutes of being SSH'ed in or after 45 minutes its completely random.

Any help would be great thank you!!

New To Linux? Don’t Use Ubuntu, You’ll Probably Like Linux Mint Better

Linux newbies have probably heard a lot about Ubuntu, but it isn’t the only Linux distribution. In fact, Ubuntu’s standard Unity desktop is still controversial among long-time Linux users today. Many Linux users prefer a more traditional desktop interface, and Linux Mint offers that. As Ubuntu focuses more on Ubuntu for phones, Linux Mint may be an even clearer choice in the future. No, Ubuntu isn’t terrible. Some people prefer Ubuntu’s Unity desktop and love it. But you’ll probably have an easier time getting to grips with Linux Mint instead of Ubuntu. Read more
