I have created a droplet on Digital Ocean and installed CentOS as its OS. I would like to resolve the frequent timeout of the remote ssh connection. I found a guide on this link how can i fix ssh timeout? . I have successfully navigated to /etc/ssh/ directory. When I list available sub-directories in /etc/ssh/ directory, I am able to see sshd_config sub-directory. However, when I try moving into the sub-directory I get the error “bash: cd: /etc/ssh/sshd_config: Not a directory.”
What could I be doing wrong?
Below is what I’ve keyed in the terminal
[root@centosFirstServer134327 ssh]# pwd /etc/ssh [root@centosFirstServer134327 ssh]# ls moduli ssh_host_ecdsa_key ssh_host_ed25519_key.pub sshd_config ssh_config ssh_host_ecdsa_key.pub ssh_host_rsa_key ssh_config.d ssh_host_ed25519_key ssh_host_rsa_key.pub [root@centosFirstServer134327 ssh]# cd /etc/ssh [root@centosFirstServer134327 ssh]# cd /etc/ssh/sshd_config bash: cd: /etc/ssh/sshd_config: Not a directory
Can you go to this directory to edit ssh file
This will make the server send the clients a “null packet” every 120 seconds and not disconnect them until the client have been inactive for 720 intervals (120 seconds * 720 = 86400 seconds = 24 hours).
