Sometimes, you may find yourself in a position where you need to securely copy some files through an SSH tunnel that spans multiple hops. Never fear, because it’s just as easy as a couple of terminal commands.
First, set up your proxy SSH chain. Here’s an example command to set up a tunnel that will listen on port 9000 of your local machine and connect over two hops on port 22 to a remote machine:
Then, in a different terminal, you can run the SCP command as you would normally. Just point it at the local port you just set up.
