Host chaining, search available configuration and other helpful commands for everyday ssh-related task.
sshp <HOST> Login to MACHINE sshp <HOST1>+<HOST2> Login to HOST2 via HOST1 sshp [info] [pattern] sshp [grep] [pattern] sshp [search] [pattern] search your ~/.ssh/config and accepts all options of grep sshp [list|-l] list all hosts sshp [start|status|stop] <HOST..> Check the SSH connection status of a HOST sshp proxy <HOST> HOST as proxy server
sshp supports host chaining, this take advantage of
ProxyCommand and establish a connection for you. Your local machine will need to have
nc installed for this to work.
$ sshp host1+host2
This will first attempt a connection to
host1, then once a connection is established it will reuse that connection to login to
Configuration for both
host2 can be configured in
~/.ssh/config. Alternatively you can also set it directly.
$ sshp user1@host1+user2@host2
Chaining multiple host with
+ can work too.
Additionally, you can set the following in your
~/.ssh/config so that you use
ssh command directly.
Host *+* ProxyCommand sshp ProxyCommand %h %p
$ ssh host1+host2
- Add the following to your
~/.ssh/config. This will use Shared SSH connections
Host * ForwardAgent yes ControlMaster auto ControlPath /tmp/%r@%h:%p ControlPersist 4h KeepAlive yes Compression yes UseRoaming no
2. Add `sshp` to your `~/bin` directory #### Advanced If you want to separate your configuration files to smaller chunks, you can do so by creating a `~/.ssh/config.d` directory and `sshp` will consolidate all files found in this directory into `~/.ssh/config` Beware, this will overwrite your `~/.ssh/config` whenever there are changes in `~/.ssh/config.d`. #### Reference For more information on how to configure your `~/.ssh/config`, see http://linux.die.net/man/5/ssh_config
