SCP through bastion w/o nc

Hey all,

I've spent most of the morning poking at this question so I though I'd ask.

I need to connect to serverX through SSH, to get there I need to pass through bastionX I can two-pass SSH to the box and read all I want. The issue is that I want to be able to scp logs from serverX to my local machine. I tried editing my local .ssh/conf and adding a ProxyCommand using nc, however netcat isn't available on the bastion, almost nothing other then scp and ssh is.

Is there any way to scp from my local box to serverX through the bastion without using nc?

All machines are running Linux of differing flavors

Thanks for reading,

Foolish me

So it turns out all I need to do is set up a simple SSH tunnel and point SCP to the port I have specified on my localhost as the Source Port.

Thanks to anyone who read this



network, scp, ssh
