            Bug ID: 2627
           Summary: Documentation update: semantic of ClientAliveCountMax
                    0 unclear
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: 7.3p1
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: trivial
          Priority: P5
         Component: sshd
          Assignee: unassigned-bugs at mindrot.org

It seems to be reasonably well understood (e.g.
that setting ClientAliveCountMax to 0 can terminate an alive but idle
session.  However, this is not clear, as demonstrated by that email.

It would be helpful to add something like

>With ClientAliveCountMax == 0 there will be no "client alive packet"
>sent and I will force a disconnection if there is no traffic within
>ClientAliveInterval secs.

to the section on ClientAliveCountMax or ClientAliveInterval.
