Hmmm, yes, I guess you are right.
I just issue a single command, like: ssh hostD
and all of the intermediate steps just happen. I'm using a script,
# $Id: netcat-proxy,v 1.2 2006/05/05 00:21:28 mitchell Exp $
if [ "$3" != "" ]; then
# echo "bouncehost: " $bouncehost
# echo "target : " $target
# echo "port : " $port
ssh $bouncehost nc -w 1 $target $port
and then in my config file have:
ProxyCommand ~/bin/netcat-proxy hostC %h
Giving the illusion that a single ssh command has been issued. And I
guess having an option for each ssh to display its endpoints wouldn't
work either. Where my ssh hostD would return generate something like:
hostA to hostB
hostB to hostC
hostC to hostD
where each line is being generated from each individual ssh.
