I have multiple servers that I need to remote into. I prefer Cygwin over Putty to do so.
Anyhows - the process of opening my cool Mintty window and then typing the following commands takes too long. PS - I am using a "key" authentication to these servers.
First, I double Click Cygwin Terminal shortcut from my windows desktop.
Then once the terminal session has booted up, from the command prompt I type the following -
$ eval `ssh-agent` $ ssh-add $ ssh <username>@<servername>
Please keep in mind that my 'servername' is variable. In fact I have about 10 different server names that could potentially be inserted there - Hence my need for 10 different shortcuts. I would prefer to double click on something from my desktop that will fire up my Mintty and automatically execute the above bash shell commands.
Does anyone have or can recommend a nice/elegant solution to do this?
