[cjw44@riva ~]$ ssh --help
Usage: ssh [options] host [command]
-l user Log in using this user name.
-n Redirect input from /dev/null.
-A Enable authentication agent forwarding.
-a Disable authentication agent forwarding.
-X Enable X11 connection forwarding.
-x Disable X11 connection forwarding.
-X is not necessarily the default, either; see /etc/ssh/ssh_config.
