 Connecting Through a Gateway

On Lamp tells us how to use SSH and connect through a gateway.

"All along we've assumed that your outgoing connectivity is unlimited: that you can establish any outgoing TCP connection you desire. Even our discussions of firewalls have assumed that they restrict only incoming traffic. In more secure (or simply more regimented) environments, this might not be the case: in fact, you might not have direct IP connectivity at all to the outside world. In the corporate world, companies commonly require all outgoing connections to pass through a proxy server or gateway host : a machine connected to both the company network and the outside."
