Hi, in your script, it would be better to revert it back to local hostname after ssh finishes.

Both this and LocalCommand seems neat, too bad that I have solved it by manually setting PS1 on all machines :)

I solved the problem in bash by editing my ~/.profile file:

ssh() {
 echo -ne "\033k${args##* }\033\\";
 /usr/bin/ssh "$@";

It"s a rather simple script, whenever you call ssh, first this script is
executed, which calls the real ssh in the end, with the same arguments.
Before it does that, however, it sets the screen title to the last
argument of the ssh command. Usually, this is the hostname, at least for
the way I enter commands ;-)
