Our database server is not accessible directly. You have to SSH into a login server and then SSH into the db server. I have been using putty as my ssh client to create single tunnels so I can admin databases but in this case, I need to tunnel and then tunnel again. I am not well versed on the command line syntax of SSH tunneling.

What I want is to create a tunnel through putty

15432:localhost15432 which pipes to a tunnel on the db server 15432:localhost:5432 to I can use a GUI admin tool on windows to admin a linux PSQL install over two hops via SSH.

Please provide step by and command line examples. Thanks (This is on CentOS if that matters)

Hi,

I usually don't just give a url to read but this one has solved the problem with nice and short writing to it and should have cred for it. Solution uses "plink" that comes with putty.
