Autossh

Monitors and automatically reestablishes SSH connections

Autossh is a program to monitor and automatically reestablish SSH connections. It is similar to rstunnel (Reliable SSH Tunnel), but is easier to set up and use, especially for connections to multiple hosts. The program monitors connections by using a loop of port forwardings, and will back off on the rate of connection attempts when experiencing rapid failures (such as connection refused).
