Thanks for this information. This is helpful.

I connect to the remote computer via ssh and I am being log out after certain time if I stop working. I checked the /etc/bashrc and /etc/csh.cshrc files in remote computer, and ~.bashrc and ~.cshrc files in my local computer but I could not find anything about the log out time. Where is this log out time hidden?

Is it your ssh session that is logging out or your remote bash session? If it's the bash session then you follow the instructions as per the link I provided. If it's the ssh session then take a look at your settings in your ~/.ssh/config config file.

I am not sure about the source of logging out. The massage is

Read from remote host abc.edu: Connection reset by peer.

Also, there is no ~/.ssh/config file.

It could also be caused by a TCP timeout in your router or gateway that connects you to the network. Or the router/gateway on the receiving side... It all depends. Timeout can also be set in /etc/ssh/sshd_config
