I recently asked this question, and this was one of the answers I got:
I'm running Ubuntu 14.04.03, so YMMV. Investigate some of these packages:
$ apt-cache search ssh | grep multiple byobu - powerful, text based window manager and shell multiplexer vcsh - Version Control System for $HOME - multiple Git repositories in $HOME capistrano - Executes commands in parallel on multiple servers clusterssh - administer multiple ssh or rsh shells simultaneously fail2ban - ban hosts that cause multiple authentication errors mssh - tool to administrate multiple servers at once ruby-net-ssh-multi - Ruby library for making multiple SSH connections to remote systems sslh - ssl/ssh multiplexer
I mean I know you don't have to do all of the work for the other person and that you can sort of point them in the right direction, but how vague is too vague? Because the person isn't even sure if any of these packages will work... I don't think so, but as it hasn't been deleted yet, would this be considered an acceptable answer?
