SSH Session Timeout on Cisco ASA

swscco001
Level 3
Level 3

Hello everybody,

our customer has a Firepower 2130 cluster running ASA OS rel. 9.14(3)18.

I want to open a SSH session (Putty) to the outside IF that stay open for a day
without further interactions.

Unfortunately the session will be close after a couple of minutes.

ASA01/sec/act(config)# no ssh timeout
did not solve the issue.

How can I configure this (if possible)?

Thanks a lot!



Bye
Rene

@swscco001 you cannot, the timeout is configurable between 1 - 60 minutes, the default timeout is 5 minutes I believe.

As @Rob Ingram noted, it's not possible. "no ssh timeout" simply restores the default value (5 minutes).
