I am facing one problem with one of my current ISP i.e. WorldCall , and get PTCL broadband installed today to address the issue. Though I will be running both for comparison for some time before making a final decision.
Now coming to the problem , on WorldCall my ssh sessions to remote linux servers break after some time , like in 5 or 10 min, to have a continues connection I have to run some command in shell to keep it active , e.g. a 'top' command running etc.
This was not a problem when I was on Micronet back in ISB. ( in Karachi from some time now)
I have not asked WorldCall support for this, as I really don't think they will even understand what I am talking about , based on the customer service I get from them.
Any one know if this can be resolved at my end ? I mean may be with some modem setting ? (I have Scientific Atlanta wireless modem from WorldCall).
