comment What is the benefit of not allocating a terminal in ssh?
@Air There isn't a problem I was trying to fix. There was a choice in how ssh is implemented that I was trying to understand. The question is very clear and the answer by Andrew B addresses the question nicely. The answer can be summed up like this: running ssh -t always is bad because it can cause some commands to break in weird ways. Whereas, running a command that needs a PTY without one results in a clear error message that you need a terminal.

This does not answer the question. I already know how to allocate a pseudo-tty. I want to know why I shouldn't just always allocate one.

comment Why do I have to log into ssh with my password once per day?
klist -v produced an error for me, but klist by itself shows two things that started when I logged in and expire 10 hours later, so I am guessing those are the tickets. This is likely the culprit if it requires my password after the expires time.
