When you don't type or the command doesn't output a for some time, the server might close your session.

You can try increasing the ServerAliveInterval time on your SSH client.

You can also increase the ClientAliveInterval time on your server so it applies to all clients where you will be connecting from, but I wouldn't do that.

Thanks my boss i set ServerAliveInterval to 30 sec and seem to work..Thanks again
