[kwlug-disc] ssh into remote with initial command, and stick!

I deleted your original email, so lost some details here.

But this works for me:

ssh -t login at host top

Without a bash -c

That gives me a working top. When I press q the remote command exits and I
get disconnected. Works as designed.

If you want it to show you just one refresh of top, then use

ssh -t login at host 'top -b -n1'
