I wholeheartedly agree. I'd suggest cutting off anyone's session that's
been idle for longer than an hour or two. I'd suggest using something
like these parameters in /etc/openssh/sshd_config (or whatever the
equivalent is for Solaris):
ClientAliveInterval 300 #every 5 minutes
ClientAliveCountMax 18 #5 min. x 18 tries == 90 minutes
These are totally arbitrary values. But seriously, how difficult is it
to enter your username and password to login again?
