- At my desk with laptop plugged in to ethernet and connected to remote server over SSH
- Want to move to other side of office with laptop and change to WiFi without interrupting SSH connection
I've tried: connecting to WiFi first then disconnecting ethernet; and also disconnecting ethernet first then connecting to WiFi. Neither approach works. Also tried when using Ubuntu and OS X servers along with both OS options as well for the client. No luck.
It seems like I need some way of telling my SSH connection that it should begin using the newly connected network interface instead of the old disconnected interface. Any ideas?
I realize that I could just stay on WiFi the whole day, but I don't want to do that. I also realize that I can just work from within a screen session on the remote server and then re-connect to that screen session after changing interfaces, but I don't want to do that either. For example, I might be piping some big command like a database dump over SSH or I might have files open through SSHFS, or I might just want to avoid the nuisance of re-connecting
