How can I let start the SSH Client (Dropbear) with keepalive option?

    I use the Linksys WRT54GL with Tomato 1.23.

    Over the SSH Daemon "Dropbear sshd v0.52" I use an SSH-Connection,
    but if the there is no traffic the connection is been terminated.

    So I like to let start Dropbear with the keepalive option.
    How can I implement that in tomato?

    Are you sure it is Tomato that is dropping the connection? I have left SSH sessions open to my router for over a week without incident.

    In my remote machine (which connects to the Tomato router), I have:


    which contains:

    TCPKeepAlive no

    I have the answer :)

    I dont have to load the keepalive option on server-side.
    I enabled it on SSH-client-side and it worked.
