ASA SSH Timeout

Hi,

How can I increase the sesion timeout for SSH. Looks like I am limited to 60 minutes. Is there a way to increase this?

Thank you

AP-ASA-5520(config)# ssh timeout ?

configure mode commands/options:

  <1-60>  Idle time in minutes after which a ssh session will be closed

You can use the MPF configuration to set the SSH timeout, but I am uncertain if you can go past 60 min.... but might be worth a try.

Patrick,

You are correct, maximum ssh timeout is 60 minutes for a idle connection.
