comment How do I properly SSH into a server behind a NAT while maintaining the tightest possible security?
@T.BrianJones nice to hear it works for you. Two remarks: 1) if you are using ssh-agent you do not need to configure IdentityFile, it will try every loaded identity in the agent keychain 2) I often switch networks, but need to connect to the same hosts, so I keep my Host entries stable, and configure one "environment X forward" entry and one other "environment Y" entry, with the same LocalForward statements

comment Batch files to combine multiple files (that have parentheses in their names)
if you are already using IFTTT, look at renaming the file to a timestamped name once it appears, with a second workflow.

df will only show mounted filesystems. Bad Idea(TM) to dd stuff to devices that contain mounted filesystems..

that's two steps per connection, it's hard to script because of this (forget dsh) and using auth forwarding is considered problematic on shared hosts. The tutorial is nice, but why would I want to type stuff twice when I can have my shell with one command?

Excellent! that's just the setup I'm using, OS X on the client side. Server side does not really matter. See my answer - edit a "tunnel" host entry in your ~/.ssh/config and add a couple of entries that use those tunnels.

forgot to ask - which client OS are you using? What I describe wirks on Unix/Linux, but the technique works on Windows with PuTTY, too. It's just quite messy to setup the port forwardings with PuTTY and make it understand it should use another name as localhost for the key it gets presented with...
