I would like to forward my gpg-agent from a local workstation using a
(x1) [~] ssh -o "StreamLocalBindUnlink=yes" -R /home/sithglan/.gnupg/S.gpg-agent:/home/sithglan/.gnupg/S.gpg-agent remote.machine.de
when I do the same, I get the following error message:
Warning: remote port forwarding failed for listen path /home/sithglan/.gnupg/S.gpg-agent
>From my understanding StreamLocalBindUnlink=yes should delete the remote
listining socket before forwarding it. On the web other user report that
it is broken and someone should use a ~/.ssh/rc file to fight the
symptoms. My question is: Should it work like the above? Am I doing
something wrong? Is it fixed in a newer version and should I upgrade?
I'm using Debian Jessie 64 Bit, but fine with updating or patching sshd
to enable above usecase. Otherwise I'll go with the ~/.ssh/rc file.
