You could try setting ClientAliveInterval 60 in ssh_config of the
server or in your client machine's ssh_config set ServerAliveInterval

You should also try running the long process in screen and seeing if
the machine is what is timing out or if its just the ssh connection.

Also, I would check IdleTimeout is set to 0 to make sure its not
timing out since you are idle (waiting for the output of the file)
