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
