Definitely worth using if you need more than one concurrent connection to a SSH host.

Host *
ControlMaster auto
ControlPath ~/.ssh/master-%r@@h:%p

Host *

Host bar
Hostname bar.server2.com
IdentityFile ~/.ssh/id_dsa.bar.server2.com

Host foo
Hostname foo.server.com
IdentityFile ~/.ssh/id_dsa.foo.server.com

I have a question though. On some servers, .hushlogin doesn't seem to work. For example, I have a shell account that I use sometimes which displays some ascii art and then goes to a curses dialog that allows me to check some stats on my account (available vhosts and ports). If I put a .hushlogin file in my ~, then the curses dialog is disabled but the /etc/motd is still displayed when I connect.

Is there any other way besides .hushlogin to silence ssh login chatter?
