Explain the output of ~#

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!


I'm working to uncover why my ssh sessions usually hang if I open any X pro
grams (i.e. I've turned on X11 forwarding).  This posting, https://groups.g
oogle.com/forum/#!topic/comp.security.ssh/GHn8g7wg78Y, has been most helpfu
l.  However, I don't quite understand what I'm looking at with the ~# escap
e sequence.  This is what I've got:

[afalanga@hercules ~]$ ~#
The following connections are open:
  #0 client-session (t4 r0 i0/0 o0/0 fd 4/5 cc -1)

From the ssh manual page, I can easily see ~# means

     ~#         List forwarded connections.

However, this does not explain what the "stuff" in parentheses are.  What d
oes it mean?
