OS: NetBSD 2.0.2
Is it possible to start the ssh client in interactive mode?
Ie. w/o giving the whole command line, esp. the remote machine, login
name and remote port?
I want to omit this to be shown in the process table (so `w' and `ps'
will not give these info to other users).
According to ssh(1) it doesn't seems to be possible but maybe there's an
If not, any ideas who to omit login_user, remote_machine, remote_port in
the process table?

Re: client: interactive mode
You can specify user and port in the ~/.ssh/config file but the host
specification is mandatory (you could however use a Hostname directive
so the argument on the command line isn't the real hostname. It won't
help much, though, the host and port will be visible in netstat anyway.
It's also possible to spoof ps by trashing argv on some platforms.

Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
