Add the following to your .bashrc file


SSH_ENV=$HOME/.ssh/environment

function start_agent {
echo "Initialising new SSH agent..."
/usr/bin/ssh-agent | sed 's/^echo/#echo/' > ${SSH_ENV}
echo succeeded
chmod 600 ${SSH_ENV}
. ${SSH_ENV} > /dev/null
/usr/bin/ssh-add;
}

# Source SSH settings, if applicable

if [ -f "${SSH_ENV}" ]; then
. ${SSH_ENV} > /dev/null
#ps ${SSH_AGENT_PID} doesn't work under cywgin
ps -ef | grep ${SSH_AGENT_PID} | grep ssh-agent$ > /dev/null || {
start_agent;
}
else
start_agent;
fi
