  Description     : autossh - Automatically restart SSH sessions and tunnels

autossh is a program to start an instance of ssh and monitor it, restarting
it as necessary (should it die or stop passing traffic). The idea comes from
rstunnel (Reliable SSH Tunnel), but was re-implemented in C. Connection
monitoring is done using a loop of port forwardings. It backs off on the rate
of connection attempts when experiencing rapid failures such as the connection
being refused.
