I found an explanation how to abbreviate host names for ssh connections. It can be found here.
So basically you add these lines to
Host foo HostName IP-adress-of-server
Now you can connect with:
if you have the same username on host and client or
to use a certain username.
If you have any questions, suggestions, thoughts and comments please feel free to email me.
