Recently at work, I came across a situation where the web server I needed to access (ssh) could only be accessed via another workstation. Considering that ssh is already quite secure, I didn’t see the point but I had to live with it. But I am inherently lazy, and I always look for ways to make my task easier. What worried me is that this situation is not common enough to be there a generic solution. But I started looking anyway and knowing that the closest thing to this is tunneling, I searched for ssh tunneling, and what do you know, it is there.
