Unless you need X11 and/or port forwarding, why not try net/mosh?

mosh uses ssh to bootstrap itself before it switches to a UDP based 
protocol running on a port > 60000. mosh is fairly resistant to packet 
loss and allows for seamless roaming. Roaming is limited to IPv4 or 
IPv6, depending on which protocol you chose when you did the initial 
connect. The use of screen or tmux is highly recommended. More
