Re: SSH tunnel for ssh traffic

I need to ssh to some remote VM that sit in a private LAN. For any other

But what do I do for ssh traffic? Since ssh is not host agnostic, it
will always complain about localhost having a different RSA key.
I just do not want to edit the known_hosts every time I need to connecto
to a new machine!

I have a machine which changes RSA key every boot (boot from read only USB key).
The messages you are trying to avoid go away withi this in ssh_config:

Host myhostname
StrictHostKeyChecking no

you should have localhost instead of myhostname.

(are you really worried about someone hijacking localhost?) :-)
