fsh is a tool for establishing an ssh tunnel for remote execution of commands without requiring an ssh authentication on every connection. Once the tunnel is established, remote commands can be executed almost instantaneously. This makes systems such as remote cvs over ssh much faster. It includes fcp, an rcp variant that uses fsh.

Release Notes: This version works with Python 2.2, as well as older Python versions.
Release Notes: Better rsh compatibility. You can now enter a password or passphrase if ssh asks for one. A security hole that could provide access to the fsh tunnel by other local users has been fixed. Unused tunnels can optionally be closed after a configurable period of time.
Release Notes: A new command, fcp, is a scp replacement that uses the tunnel to speed up file copying. fsh is no longer dependent on a development release of Python.
Release Notes: fshd is now started automatically by fsh. fsh understands the "-l user" flag, so you no longer have to have the same username on the local and remote system.
Release Notes: Version 0.1 is the first public release of fsh. The program works for the author, but has not yet been used by anybody else. Some documentation is included.
