External VNC client keep alive?

Hello everyone! I discovered proxmox recently and started experimenting it. I searched how to open a port for guest vm's vnc and connect vnc to it externally. I used this command for each vm with a different port: change vnc, and created a linux vm then connect to each vm via VNC. However, after a few hours or so, the vnc session on the linux 'keep-alive' vm times out. Does anyone know how to extend the 'timeout' time for external vnc sessions?
