i use this script when i log in initially (~/bin/auth - run from my
if ps aux | grep -q '$USER.*ssh-agent'; then
ssh-agent > $HOME/bin/.ssh-env
echo "export SSH_AGENT_PID=$SSH_AGENT_PID" > $HOME/bin/.ssh-env
echo "export SSH_AUTH_SOCK=$SSH_AUTH_SOCK" >> $HOME/bin/.ssh-env
echo "setenv SSH_AGENT_PID $SSH_AGENT_PID" > $HOME/bin/.ssh-env.csh
echo "setenv SSH_AUTH_SOCK $SSH_AUTH_SOCK" >> $HOME/bin/.ssh-env.csh
ssh-add ~/.ssh/identity ~/.ssh/id_dsa
