Could you be a little more specific on what have you already tried?
sshd_config's "ClientAliveInterval" and "ClientAliveCountMax" options
should do the trick. You might also want to take a look at

I don't think this is related to OpenSSH - you might try

This is what a simple lookup on their faq returned:

-Why does df return strange values on partitions mounted via sshfs?

Because the SFTP protocol doesn't have a statfs operation.

OpenSSH 5.1 added support for a statfs extension to the SFTP protocol,
and from version 2.1 sshfs can make use of this extension. So df will
work if your SFTP server is OpenSSH > 5.1 and your sshfs version is >
