           Summary: Ability to set KeepAlive time
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: -current
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: ssh
        AssignedTo: openssh-unix-dev at mindrot.org
        ReportedBy: danfuzz at milk.com

I currently have to deal with a (arguably broken) firewall which likes to drop
connections that have been idle for more than a couple minutes. Unfortunately,
while ssh gives me the option of using keepalives, it doesn't give me a way to
set the keepalive time, and, since the default is 3 hours, it doesn't do me much

What I'd love to see is either a KeepAliveTime option indicating a number of
seconds between keepalives if KeepAlive is "on", or make KeepAlive itself take a
number of seconds as an option.
