Fix tmux issue with conda

Problem: When running a conda environment and opening tmux on macOS, a utility called path_helper is run again. Essentially, the shell is initialized twice which messes up the ${PATH} so that the wrong Python version shows up within tmux.

Solution  If using bash, edit /etc/profile and add one line. (For zsh, edit /etc/zprofile)

Mosh is similar to SSH, remote terminal application but it allows roaming, and supports intermittent connectivity. Its usage is similar to SSH. It has to be installed both on the server and client.

On RedHat/CentOS remote server:

sudo yum install

sudo yum install mosh

sudo firewall-cmd --zone=public --permanent --add-port=60000-61000/udp

sudo firewall-cmd --reload


If you're using Azure, make sure to allow the inbound port:

On local Mac:

brew install mosh
