Is there a SSH config file (~/.ssh/config) information page with all attributes you can have in that file?

Who is managing the SSH protocol and its implementation in Mac (dont know what ssh client Mac uses)?

Belongs on server fault. – Rook Aug 20 '10 at 6:23
Would be better on Super User than Server Fault. This is a user issue, not an administrator issue. – dmckee Aug 22 '10 at 1:17
the config files are all hidden in some deep directories, and they use a plist format, i messed with them at one point, but i don't remember where the files are, sorry. Pretty much its all in an xml style formatting, instead of a simple unix type config. – Jimsmithkka Aug 22 '10 at 3:03

Depends on your ssh client.

For OpenSSH there's man ssh_config.
