Cool SSH trick

This article shows a cool little SSH login trick:

This will open the master connection in the background and now you can connect to those remote systems easily using “ssh w1″ or “ssh w2″. This also allows you to easily scp files from the local system to a remote system without copying the files twice: first to guard and from there to the remote system.

It relies on creating a master command connection, of course. But almost all cool SSH connection tricks rely on the same thing. And really, a master connection is so amazingly useful that one should do this, anyway!
