Each mosh client requires a free and accessible UDP port between 60000 and 61000 on the server to function.
With Ufw, allow these ports with:
ufw allow 60000:61000/udp
Once the remote host has SSH running, mosh installed, and the UFT8 locale set connection is possible:
- ssh — the ubiquitous tool for logging into and working on remote machines securely.
