Mosh with port forwarding (like SSH)

I found an open issue for this exact feature at Mosh's GitHub. And an open bounty at bountysource currently at $616.

So it looks like it's not possible yet.


As a workaround for my SSH disconnect issue I added the following lines to my server's /etc/ssh/sshd_config:

ClientAliveInterval 60  # send null packet every x seconds to clients
ClientAliveCountMax 720  # time them out after doing so y times

Followed by a restart of the SSH daemon and a re-login via SSH.

sudo /etc/init.d/ssh restart
sudo service ssh restart
sudo systemctl restart ssh

This of course doesn't help with situations like changing cell towers on mobile connections like mosh does.
