Question from a rookie

Hello !

Well, i'm asking myself this :
Is it possible to connect to an ip adress through another one ?
In fact, my problem is that I must connect from my local machine to the host through a server (firewall).

I don't know if i'm clear.
Thanks

I must say that I know how to do what I'm asking with PUTTY, but I'm fed up with command strings...

Shame on me.

You may want to try to setup SSH tunnel.

Thank you.

But I'm not sur it's the good way. If I understand something, ssh tunelling is for that configuration :

local machine ----- server (firewall)----- internet ------- host

But I ask the question for :

Local machine ----- internet ----- server ---- host (another server, I can only reach through the other).

Well. You were true.
I set a tunnel with putty, and then I connect with winscp on the localhost (with the port defined in the tunnel). It works very well.

Thank you
