SSH Timeout – Write failed: Broken pipe

I had this problem shown up with experimental servers at my college. I assumed this was a timeout issue, so I added:

TCPKeepAlive yes
ServerAliveInterval 5
ClientAliveInterval 6000
ClientAliveCountMax 3

in the ssh config file (~/.ssh/config or /etc/ssh/ssh_config).
