SSH - Logging out

I have spent most of the day trying to look for a resolution to this problem.

Basically when i SSH in remotely my session disconnects within a few minutes if left idle.

Can anybody point me in the right direction as to where to configure it to last longer.

Using Putty from Win 2K box to connect to RH9 Linux Box

It is either a network error or possibly you need to set ClientAliveInterval in sshd_config - for more info about configuring sshd take a look at:
man sshd_config
