A new version of the autossh package is available in the Cygwin
distribution.  autossh is a program to start an instance of ssh and
monitor it, restarting it as necessary should it die or stop passing
traffic.  autossh monitors connections by sending data to an echo server
or through a loop of port forwardings, and checking that the data
returns.  autossh backs off on the rate of connection attempts when
experiencing rapid failures such as connection refused.  It includes an
NT service mode, which works well as an NT system service under

Version 1.4b-1 is a new upstream release.  It fixes a bug in polling,
and adds a new max lifetime option.
