Mosh -- ssh alternative

It improves and adds new features to ssh:

- stay connected, even change IP address
- don't have to be root to run it
- use udp
- more reliable than ssh with slow or unstable connection

1- download and install it
~$ wget
~$ tar xvf mosh-1.2.4.tar.gz
~$ cd mosh-1.2.4
~$ ./configure
~$ make
~$ sudo make install

2- on server ip,
~$  mosh-server

MOSH CONNECT 60001 GgvAopbU/svHBMltMm2SwA
