In Ubuntu 16.04 I executed:
eval $(ssh-agent) && ssh-add
Agent pid 3361
I then SSH tunneled into my VPS successfully, after inserting my passphrase.
Well, it's not that much of a "problem", but:
I went back to my local session with
exit, and when I tried to login to my VPS again, I had to reenter my passphrase...
Why would I be asked to enter the passphrase again?
I didn't close the current session and did
eval $(ssh-agent) && ssh-add, before tunneling. So, why the system won't "remember" it?
