Managing to get into several different severs, has provoked my .ssh/config file to be modified.

First of all, we want to keep alive our ssh connections with the following option:

ServerAliveInterval	60
ForwardAgent yes

This are global settings. Now we’re going to configure some specific hosts with it’s own settings.

Host home
	Username user
	IdentityFIle ~/.ssh/id_rsa
	Port 2200

Host is the short name you’ll use to connect.

ssh home

Hostname is the real name for the host, can be also an IP address. Username is the one used to connect to server, it can be different from your local user. IdentityFile is the private_key used in trust with server if configured.
