Topic "Logging In Via an other SSH box"

Author Message


One of the machines that I regularly ssh to only acceps connections from a single "proxy" box. I first ssh to the "proxy" and than ssh from there to the required target machine. Is it possible to use WinSCP from in this environment to retrieve files from the "target" box?
If so how? I mainly want to use this for scripting.
Thanks a lot

With some configuration, you specify "ssh" as a shell for SCP connection to the proxy server. Please search the forum, you will find some hints from other users.
