Hi, I'm sure I had this working before but I've hit it again with a new
jump host on AWS. I know there's a way to set up ssh-agent and ssh-add so I
can carry the credentials through ssh calls but I'm missing it at the
I have 'ForwardAgent yes' in my .ssh/config file and run ssh-agent and
ssh-add in my .profile. (more precisely I've added "eval `ssh-agent -s`").
However the list of identities is empty.
What am I missing?
As I mentioned this is a jump host - a nano instance that exists solely to
act as a bridge from a few trusted addresses to the internal network. The
other option is setting up a full VPN to access the internal-only network
but I mentioned my problems with VPN on AWS elsewhere.
