Re: More (more) SSH Fun (X11 forwarding)

I have a related question. I have no trouble using X11 forwarding from

a = firewall/router running potato
b = desktop running woody
c = laptop running woody
If the laptop (c) is connected directly to my LAN (either wired or
wireless), I can "ssh -X b" and connect to the desktop (b) computer and
run programs under X. If I'm at work (therefore outside the firewall),
and want to connect to the desktop computer, I can "ssh a", and after
logging in to the firewall I can "ssh b" and read my mail using mutt,
but I cannot run program under X (adding the -X switch doesn't work).
How do I connect to the desktop computer _thru_ the firewall and use X11
forwarding? Do I have to setup ssh port forwarding on the firewall? Do
I have to setup some other VPN software? Is there a howto anywhere that
will guide me?
You should be able to cascade the X forwarding.
Did you try,
user@work> ssh -X user@firewall
user@firewall> ssh -X user@desktop
