Topic "Indirecting through multiple layers of ssh tunnel"

I've just downloaded WinSCP and am very impressed. However, in order to get from my desktop to files elsewhere on the net, I have to traverse our firewall.

I've found the proxy settings, however it would also be great if there were an option to use a chained sequence of ssh tunnels.

So far as I'm aware, all that would be necessary is a box in which to specify a prefix command, such as "ssh foo", which is executed before doing anything else with the remote system.

In fact, maybe this can be faked up by typing some rune into the "Shell" option?
