That's an interesting idea, I had no idea the `ProxyCommand` was there
when I
wrote this request but I'm not sure it is possible to actually make it

>From what I understand from `ssh_config(5)`, the directive
`ProxyCommand` can
be used to eventually replace the default `ssh` command (the client
and connect to an `sshd` server by itself.

I tried adding to `~/.ssh/config` the following:

    ProxyCommand /usr/bin/gpg-connect-agent UPDATESTARTUPTTY /bye &&
ssh -p %p %r@%h

with `ssh -vvv` the result was the following:

        OpenSSH_7.6p1, OpenSSL 1.1.0g  2 Nov 2017
        debug1: Reading configuration data /home/doron/.ssh/config

        debug1: ssh_exchange_identification: OK

        ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host

I tried replacing `;` with `&&` and the result was the same and in both
no connection was established.

I also tried putting a `ProxyCommand` that is calling a shell script
that runs
those two commands (with the `TOKENS`) and I received the following
error (the
same line repeats itself until I `^c`):

        Pseudo-terminal will not be allocated because stdin is not a

Is it even possible to have `gpg-connect-agent UPDATESTARTUPTTY /bye`
automatically with `ProxyCommand` the way I wanted?
