Whenever I idle on my ssh connection, the connection is closed after 10 Minutes (or a bit longer. couldn't track time exactly).

I can't go make a tea without having the connection dropped.
The Server is running NetBSD 2.0 and sshd:
SSH-2.0-OpenSSH_3.6.1 NetBSD_Secure_Shell-20030917

Neither my IP nor something else changes.
The machine is running default 2.0 confs and is actually running fine.
I noticed this after I checked my logs.
The connection keeps dropping, if you are idle.
I don't know if I am missing something, but if, it should be changed from default to able permanent connections.

I looked into the sshd_config but couldn't find anything important.
I recently read a post from someone complaining about the same problem and also found this post from 2003:

login in via ssh and just do nothing on the shell.
after 10-30 minutes the open connection is dead.

if you relogin you will find your dead connection on the previous pty.

yes please.
