Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I wish I knew...
The only thing I know it is a FreeBSD server. I can login and su into it, but the dialer was set up by an other guy whose help is unavailable.
Then how can I determine the dialer first?
I do not think this is a question of an SSH setting, since even those guys who do not use SSH just browse the internet via that dial-up connection are disconnected when the one hour is over.
Or do you rather mean that SSH can somehow keep alive a dial-up connection even if the connection termination is programmed somewhere else? I suspect that this is a hard limit, that cannot be overridden by keep-alive requests.
However, I may give it a try tommorrow when the next connection is due...

You can look at the file without altering it in any way. If you see something that looks like a timing control entry, then get out of the file by hitting the "q" key. Then open it up in your favorite editor.
