-v which has a max limit of 3-4 controls the verbosity for the
I'm behind a proxy and I have ssh setup to use a proxy, so this could be the case but I've noticed that
ssh email@example.com -vvvv is more reliable than
ssh firstname.lastname@example.org. Call me crazy, but if I don't specify the verbosity sometimes it just doesn't connect. If I do specify the verbosity, it will be more informative and connect.
Is there any explanation for this behaviour? And for me this is pretty consistent behaviour. Does the verbosity somehow change a variable in the way the ssh connects and returns data such that it forces it to work?
