MOSH(1)                                                                MOSH(1)




NAME

       mosh-client - client-side helper for mosh


SYNOPSIS

       MOSH_KEY=KEY mosh-client [-v] IP PORT
       mosh-client -c


DESCRIPTION

       mosh-client  is a helper program for the mosh(1) remote terminal appli-
       cation.

       mosh itself is a setup script that establishes an SSH connection,  runs
       the server-side helper mosh-server, and collects the server's port num-
       ber and session key.

       mosh then executes mosh-client with the server's IP address, port,  and
       session key. mosh-client runs for the lifetime of the connection.

       The  22-byte base64 session key given by mosh-server is supplied in the
       MOSH_KEY environment variable. This represents a 128-bit AES  key  that
       protects the integrity and confidentiality of the session.

       For  constructing  new  setup  wrappers for remote execution facilities
       other than SSH, it may be necessary to invoke mosh-client directly.

       With the -c option, mosh-client instead prints the number of colors  of
       the terminal given by the TERM environment variable.

       The  -v option will print some debugging information on standard error.
       More instances of this flag will result in more debugging  information.
       If standard error is not redirected from the terminal, the display will
       be corrupted and quickly become unusable.



ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

       MOSH_KEY
              This variable must be set, and  must  contain  a  Base64-encoded
              cryptographic key from mosh-server(1).


       MOSH_ESCAPE_KEY
              See mosh(1).


       MOSH_PREDICTION_DISPLAY
              Controls local echo as described in mosh(1).


       MOSH_TITLE_NOPREFIX
              See mosh(1).
