- Combine netcat-alike and proxy support to allow "multihop" connections, with
comma-separated host syntax. Allows running
dbclient [email protected],[email protected],[email protected]
to end up at host3 via the other two, using SSH TCP forwarding. It's a bit

The comma-separated syntax can also be used for scp/rsync, eg
rsync -a -e dbclient [email protected],[email protected],martello:/home/matt/ ~/backup/
to bounce through a few hosts.
- Add -I "idle timeout" option (contributed by Farrell Aultman)
- Allow restrictions on authorized_keys logins such as restricting commands
