 This file is very useful to create ssh shortcuts to servers and add specific options for each server. In what follows I show some examples of how this can be used. You can edit the file with any text editor of your choice, it's a simple text file. This file is very useful to create ssh shortcuts to servers and add specific options for each server.

 +===== Prevent broken pipe when not using the client =====
 +
 +Sometimes you're connected to a server but you are not interacting with the ssh client because you have other things to do. In many cases the server will disconnect you if it doesn'​t see any activity (in jargon, you're //idle//)
 +
 +To prevent such disconnection add to your ''​~/​.ssh/​config''​ the following:
 +<code bash>
 +Host *
 +  ServerAliveInterval 30
 +</​code>​
 +
 +you may tweak that number to be less aggressive eventually. Typical intervals are 60, 90, 120.
 +
 +This should be done on the machine where you launch the ''​ssh''​ command, to keep that machine in contact with the server.
