Smart Tricks with ssh

  1. Host *
    ControlPath ~/.ssh/sock/%r@%h:%p
    ControlMaster auto

    from Nijel’s weblog: Speed up SSH logins – is there any disadvantage to this? Also, “completition” is a great typo along the lines of my frequent “abou tit” one.
  2. ServerAliveInterval 3600 for reasons explained in the comments here.
  3. Anything you like on the Standalone Sysadmin SSH series (ok, I cheated to get a list of three…)
