} But this will not work well if you use "screen".

Depending on the platform you're on ...

if grep -q $SSH_CONNECTION[(w)1]\:$SSH_CONNECTION[(w)2] =(netstat -na)
    print Invalid SSH_CONNECTION

This "fails" only if you disconnect from screen but leave ssh connected.

Figuring out what the correct values should be and passing them to the
in-screen shell is another matter.  The suggestion of a wrapper for
screen that writes a file, combined with checking the file contents in
the precmd or preexec hooks, might do it.  E.g.:

    screen() {
	typeset -pm SSH_\* > ~/.screen_SSH
	screen "$@"
    screen_ssh_precmd() {
	source ~/.screen_SSH

That is probably a bit too simple -- you could check the file mod time
to avoid sourcing it unnecessarily, and it'd probably be wise check that
you own the file and no one else can write to it or to the directory
it's in, etc.
