    I'm having issues with ssh crashing after changes in shell user and ftp user.
    Here is the message I get in my ssh client
    packet_write_wait: Connection to xx.xx.xx.xx: Broken pipe
    When I try to log back in I get
    ssh: connect to host xx.xx.xx.xx port 22: Connection refused
    I have to reboot the server to bring ssh back up.
    I can't see anything in the logs that offer any suggestion on the exact error.

    I've never seen that before. ISPConfig does not write any sshd config files, it just adds shell users in passwd and shadow file.

    Actually I don't even know if it is crashing I just get the broken pipe and connection refused message.

    Looks like it could be a couple of things -
    add a ClientAliveInterval 300 in the servers /etc/ssh/sshd_config file
    or could have something to do with chroot.
