How to disable the idle timeout of my xterm ?

Post by ZHUANG, Ha » Wed, 09 Jun 1999 04:00:00



Dear all,

My xterms will always get shut off after about 1 hour of idle time.
Then the system will send to root a email for shutdown of ttyp?.
How can I disable this ?

I'm using WindowMaker in Debian.

Thank you very much.

1. Need to disable idle timeout on telnet

I need to disable the automatic disconnect that telnetd seems to have in
redhat 6.0. Our users connect locally and work all day on the system. I have
looked at the man page for in.telnetd and can't find an entry for this.
There is an option to disable keepalives (which should be enabled by
default) but either my terminal emulation packages (I have tried 3) do not
support the keepalives or in.telnetd is not sending them out. Since the
connections are local I do not need the security of the auto disconnect. If
anyone knows how to disable this I would appreciate it.
