    I used the SecureShell windows client from and it have a cool
    feature: Once I logged on a server with ssh, I was able to create more
    terminals without being asked for a password again. It seems that it use
    the 'same channel' created from the first ssh client.

    So, it's possible with ssh on linux/bsd? If yes, how?

    Why I ask taht? Because it's really annoying when I have a SecureID key,
    and I must wait 1 minute between login.. When I want to open 10 terms,
    it will take more than 10 minutes and 30 seconds just to log in. Also, I
    like to enter the password ONE time.

    Thanks for your help!

    UNIX is user friendly.
    It's just selective about who its friends are.
