ssh-hacks is a small collection of scripts to make it easier to work with complex SSH tunneling setups. The utilities it provides are: tunnel: connect to a machine not visible to the one you're on through an arbitrary sequence of intermediate machines. This is done using port forwarding. waitforagent: wait until a particular private key is stored in the SSH Agent, then exit cleanly. For use in startup scripts that should run as soon as the user enters their SSH passphrase. ssh-hacks depends on the pure-python package paramiko, which depends on the compiled pycrypto.
