I am running Ubuntu 16.04 within a Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) shell on Windows 10. From within a terminal I can start ssh-agent and use it many times over the life of that terminal. I can see the ssh-agent running from ps, and also from the Windows 10 task manager.
However, if I start a 2nd WSL bash terminal from the start menu, it is unaware of the ssh-agent. Oddly, if I start a 2nd terminal from the windows command line, it works. A possible workaround would be to open new bash windows from the existing one, but I don't know how to do that either.
Is there any solution to this?
