Yeah, basically using bastion simply as a way to connect to other
It's nice, because:
- You don't need your private key on any shared systems.
- You don't need to run ssh agent forwarding at all. (You can in rare
cases when you need to copy things between internal machines).
- You don't have to ssh into a bastion then another machine, you can
'ssh foobar' and it logs you into foobar (it's using bastion behind
the scenes here, but thats transparent).
- You don't need any config on the bastion host, all of it's on your
local machine, so if bastion is re-installed it doesn't matter.
