located in ~/.ssh/config
===ssh config file:===
To make logging in easier, especially when your login name is different on your computer and the remote computer, I first set up my ssh config file with an alias to the remote address
here is an example of an ~/.ssh/config file:
host cl
hostname cluster.illinois.edu
user dlebauer
this allows logging in with the command
<pre>ssh cl</pre>
instead of <pre>ssh cluster.illinois.edu </pre>
This alias (in this case, 'cl') can also be used from emacs and other programs that use ssh.
