Setting the MID configuration parameter mid.ssh.session_timeout, which sets the timeout before MID Server closes an idle SSH session to a target, has no effect. Instead, the timeout is always 300000 milliseconds (5 minutes).

Steps to Reproduce

1. Set MID configuration parameter mid.ssh.session_timeout = 60000
2. Run a simple SSHCommand probe (for example, 'echo hello') to a Linux target.
Expected result: The "w" command (or other tool which shows sessions) on target will show the SSH session disconnects after about 60 seconds.
Actual Result: Disconnects after about 300 seconds.
