     It only patches the client, so you can get away with just putting it
on your client (which won't help people ssh-ing _from_ the server).  If
you're running Linux on the client and can become root, you could also try
(with KeepAlive yes set on both server and client):
/bin/echo "300\c" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_keepalive_time

     Fair enough, but please do cc me; I don't usually read the list.
