An Illustrated Guide to SSH Agent Forwarding

I don't think I really understood SSH "Agent Forwarding" until I read this in-depth description of what it is and how it works:

http://www.unixwiz.net/techtips/ssh-agent-forwarding.html

In fact, I admit I had been avoiding using this feature because it adds a security risk and it is best not to use something risky without knowing the internals of why it is risky.

Now that I understand it and can use it, I find it saves me a TON of time. Highly recommended (when it is safe to use, of course!)
