Subject Re: Timeout SSH session
Date Mon, 06 Feb 2017 13:03:31 GMT

This will make a bit more clear to me. At the moment it is just happening randomly ( I couldn't
find out any pattern yet except the inactivity).
I will try to figure out when it happens so we can maybe reproduce it. I will also try to
figure out if it can happen because of underlaying network issues. If I have some more info
(or not if there is none...) , I will come back.


Met vriendelijke groet / with kind regards,

Hello all,

We are using guacamole for a couple of months now but we have some problems with SSH connections.
We connect to our customers with guacamole via a VPN tunnel. Sometimes we keep the SSH-session
open but we don't use it for a while. Often the SSH-session freezes when we want to use it
again. Is there some way to keep the SSH-session alive until we logout or until the session
timeout kicks in?

Guacamole's session timeout only takes effect once all connections are closed. If a user has
an SSH connection open, they should stay logged in, regardless of whether they are actively
using that connection. As far as Guacamole is concerned, as long as the connection is open,
the user is active.

What you describe sounds like a bug, assuming there isn't some underlying network issue causing
the disconnect. Is this reliably reproducible? Do you see anything logged by guacd or Tomcat
when the connection unexpectedly terminates?
