Subject: Equivalent ssh_config setting for "ssh -N"
Dear OpenSSH developers,
Is there an equivalent ssh_config setting for the command line option
ssh -N ...
I want to connect to a server that doesn't provide an interactive shell but allows for port forwarding only. I'd love to configure this into my ~/.ssh/config as follows:
so I can call it via "ssh foo" instead of "ssh -N foo".
Are there good reasons not to provide such a setting?
Or, would you accept a patch that introduces such a setting?
If so, how sould this setting be named?
