Deadman.org Tutorial: SSH Agent Forwarding Inside of Screen

Deadman.org has a tutorial entitled "SSH Agent Forwarding and GNU Screen" which discusses how to set up ssh-agent so that it works inside of screen.

Screen allows you to disconnect from a session while leaving it running. A problem arises with SSH if you later login from somewhere else (causes environment variables to change).

A nice technique to know.
