    Due to a shortish NAT Timeout interval I'm losing my SSH connections. Does anyone know how to extend it? I can't find it in the interface.

    Got the same problem...

    SSH connections seem to drop after 15 minutes of inactivity. Anybody got a solution?

    On the RV042 I can't even keep ssh idle for 15 minutes! :p Horribly annoying. Anyone have any workarounds? I already have one query with Linksys that's unanswered after about two weeks regarding protocol binding... I guess I could submit a second one :p

    SSH has a keepalive option, which makes it send packets periodiacally. This might help the RV082 keep the NAT table fresh and not drop the connection.

    If you use Unix/Mac see the ssh_config man page, specifically the TCPKeepAlive option. Otherwise consult the manual of your SSH client.
