I would like to ssh to our firewall server and then from there ssh to another server all from within the same command line.  Is this possible?

I am using ssh keys, so no passwords are needed if I go first to the firewall and then from the firewall to the other system.

ssh bryan@firewall "ssh bryan@anothersystem"

I've already tried, and it says this:

Pseudo-terminal will not be allocated because stdin is not a terminal.
Killed by signal 2.

I have to press [ctrl]-c to cancel the operation because it doesn't work.

hi,

the machine is not hanging.  what you have is only the prompt which has nothing before to prompt you.   the basic shell is missing. if you type a command you would see the output of the command.

try a ls or a pwd to see the results yourself when you are presented with a empty line.  you can always do a CTRL-D to exit gracefully than killing with signal 2.

Just in case someone else comes across this question, I used ssh -t host "ssh -t host2" to get it to work.
