Hi,
Any one familiar with ssh sessions, can you please tell me where the default command time-out of 120 sec was set? And, did they provide any provision to override the default time?

My guess it's set at the server, inside the sshd_config file.

Hi Rob,
Does that mean, we can't override it? I assume, there should be a provision to set this time-out. Isn't it? I've tried sshSession.sendWait(String cmd, long timeLimit). But I don't know, why its not working. I'm getting error message "Exceeded Task timeout of 120000ms waiting for the end prompt."

my guess is there is not a way to override it. Why would there be? it is a security feature, and allowing someone to override it would make it worthless.

Take for instance, if a script take more than 120s(2 min.) to execute... in that case Ssh sessions won't help me. Am I wrong? If that is the case, can I use any other APIs for this purpose?
