Lot of times, you have to ssh to a server with bastion host. If you dont know what is bastion host then see this:
Now, in such cases, either you add an entry in “~/.ssh/config” to route the ssh through the bastion host or do ssh to bastion host and then ssh from there to the actual host. But wait, there is always a better way:
ssh -t <bastion host> ssh -t <actual host> You can use the usernames as required for the 2 hosts and then you will have to enter passwords, first for the bastion host and then the actual host.
