[lug] Timing Out on large Internet copies

We have remote servers.  We want to back up some data.  

We are using the SSH window from a PC to copy files off the servers across the Internet.

Our network and the servers remote networks are fast, but the copy always times out - it's some hours worth.

Any thoughts on causes?  Are there settings in Secure Shell?  Settings on the Servers?  I'm used to unused connections timing out after an hour, but not active ones.
