SSH Timeout Problems on a Virgin Media Super Hub version 2
A commonly reported problem with the Virgin Media SuperHub is that an SSH connection will timeout. This is apparently due to the device having a very small amount of RAM leading to connection details being dropped.
If you are using a Mac or a Linux computer there is a solution, as follows.
First of all bring up a terminal on your respective machine. Then change to you .ssh directory.
Now create a local config file either using touch or just go straight into vim.
When the editor opens copy and paste the following into it. Remember to press i to enter insert mode in vim.
# Site-wide defaults for various options Host * ServerAliveCountMax 600 ServerAliveInterval 10
Then save and exit. Hit escape to exit insert mode in vim.
Now it’s probably a good idea to reboot your computer. Next time you try logging in with SSH, leave the terminal idle for a while and see if it times out. You should be fine! I’ve left my terminal open for hours with the connection remaining active.
