SSH options question?


What exactly these two ssh parameters do:
Code:
ExitOnForwardFailure=yes
ServerAliveInterval=120

The manual page for ssh_config is the penultimate authoritative source on that. Only the source code is higher. We could only paraphrase either here so scroll down in the manual page for the client configuration file to find the explanations of those options:

Code:
man ssh_config
There are also pages for the client itself, or the server and its configuration.

Code:
man ssh
man sshd
man sshd_config
You can also search forwards in the manual page with a slash and backwards with a question mark. The OpenSSH manual pages are particularly well-written.

Those look like portforwarding options

Tossing those lines into a web-search, will return useful info.
Best wishes....
