Subject:   idled not disconnecting idle users on 7.2
Message-ID:  <>

Next in thread | Raw E-Mail | Index | Archive | Help
I liked using idled on 4.11 to kick off idle users as it allowed me to =
specify which users can stay connected indefinitely, whereas sshd_config =
options ClientAliveCountMax 0 and ClientAliveInterval 60 would kick =
everyone off after an hour. I do have a couple of users that have a =
legitimate need to keep their SSH tunnel open as long as they need it.

However, on 7.2 idled logs that it's disconnecting a user for idle, but =
it doesn't actually  happen. Is there a kernel parameter or something =
other than idled that does the same thing (namely excluding users or =
groups from being idled disconnected)?
