mosh, the disconnection-resistant ssh

April 22, 2017 — Carlos Fenollosa

The second post on this blog was devoted to screen and how to use it to make persistent SSH sessions.

Recently I've started using mosh, the mobile shell. It's targeted to mobile users, for example laptop users who might get short disconnections while working on a train, and it also provides a small keystroke buffer to get rid of network lag.

It really has little drawbacks and if you ever ssh to remote hosts and get annoyed because your vim sessions or tail -F windows get disconnected, give mosh a try. I strongly recommend it.
