My Problem: The ssh-servant-g3 processes that are spawned by the server are getting stuck. When this happens the server no longer accepts incoming connections. I get a bunch of errors in the event log about connections exceeding the login grace timeout period.

When the servants get stuck they are no longer listed using the ssh-server-ctrl tool using the status command. I cannot kill the processes manually because they are running as system. The only way so far to recover from this error condition is to reboot the server.

Sometimes if I monitor the service I will notice that ssh-server-ctl -status list all 5 servants as having the maximum number of connections(256). I'm not sure what is causing my connections to never end.

This problem is occurring daily and is only fixed by a reboot. Please help.

My Settings: max-connections = 256 max-processes = 40 total-connection = 1000

Does anyone think configuring the idle-timeout would help this problem of connections never ending. All of my incoming connections are using sftpg3.exe to move files. I don't want to kill connections that are doing work but if there just sitting there doing nothing then I want to disconnect them. I'm not sure why the servant gets stuck with so many connections that never close. How can I trouble shoot this problem?
