Mosh is SSH replacement that is tolerant of network latencies, disconnections, and even changing IP addresses. It runs similar to SSH but saves a lot of frustration.
Mosh and I originally met through a brilliant server admin I know. Ever since then, Mosh and I have had a loving relationship.
Here's the simple fact... If you spend a lot of time on a wifi network or traveling, Mosh is for you. Mobile shell is an SSH replacement that provides a much happier experience when connecting and staying connected with your servers. Mosh is tolerant when it comes to network interrupts, disconnections, and even changing IPs.
Mosh is quick to setup and just as easy as SSH to use.
Be sure to run each line on its own.
sudo apt-get install python-software-properties sudo add-apt-repository ppa:keithw/mosh sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install mosh
rpm -Uvh http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/5/i386/epel-release-5-4.noarch.rpm yum install mosh
