I'm on too many lists already, so haven't joined this one. If you have 
things that I really need to know, please reply or CC me off-list.

I often work through masqueraded (NAT) links, and find that the 
following patch is able to keep an idle ssh link up where nothing else 
will. Please consider making it a part of the main ssh package.

I understand that Linux-Mandrake, starting with the updates to their 
distribution release number 7.2, includes this patch routinely. I myself 
have never had a problem with it. Does it do anything nasty to other 
(non-Linux) systems?

said, 'Gee, I'm enjoying the crime and the poverty, but it just isn't
cold enough. Let's go west.'" -- Richard Jeni
