Accelerating OpenSSH connections with ControlMaster

Hey I think you forgot to mention that you need one connection to be active for the second to be accelerated.
I get some 10x improvement in the second one (and that too on a 1GBps LAN!). You can simply make ssh hang around in the background with this command:
ssh -fMN <hostname>
