Using Mosh to Solve Intermittent Connectivity Issues 

If you are experiencing intermittent connectivity, a potential solution is using Mosh (Mobile Shell) as your ssh client. Mosh will attempt to automatically reconnect to your ssh session if connectivity is lost.

Instructions for installation on your OS can be found on

Note: connecting to a remote host requires that the mosh-server package be installed on the host machine. Most linux hosts at MCECS should have mosh-server installed, but if you find you are unable to mosh to a particular host, try using mosh to connect to a host that does have it installed, then ssh from that location to the desired host.
