How to resolve Network Error: Software Caused Connection Abort

We often get “Network Error: Software Caused Connection Abort” when the connection is idle for some time to the server. This happens because some network firewalls terminate the connection if no data is sent through the network through either direction after some time

This issue can be very irritating as you have to log in to the server again and again. In this post, we will learn how we can avoid this error and keep the session active

Step 1 Open the putty connection

Put the hostname where you are going to connect

Step 2. Click on the connection on the left-hand side

Step 3 Put 30 in the seconds between keepalives and click the check box ” Enable TCP keepalives”

This will make the putty session keep on sending the SSH packet if the session is idle every 30 sec so as to keep the session live

Step 4 To keep this setting intact while working on the server, it is good to save the server with the same name, and then when you want to connect to the server, you can just load the server in Putty and connect
