<-- Hi Jon;  in sshd_config, set the following (it is commented out by 

ClientAliveInterval x
ClientAliveCountMax y

where x and y are your variables - timeout interval is governed by x 
seconds * y

You will need to restart sshd - be careful, since you don't want to lock 
yourself out!

service sshd restart
