How do I restart my ssh-agent?

Normally your `ssh-agent` persists even when you log out of a machine. However, from time to time, it can stop and will need restating.

If you are prompted for your passphrase, this means the ssh-agent has stopped for some reason. The agent should have been re-initialised when you logged onto PUMA and you will need to re-associate your ssh keys to the agent.

To do so, run the command:

puma$ ssh-add
