Another question on Konqui and fish

Hi there,

From computer.home, I'd like to connect to But this cannot be done directly as I need to go through So the first step is to fish from computer.home to

But then I don't know how to fish from to When I try that, it's always from computer.home!

So my question is: is it possible to work with fish as with ssh? I mean, login from A to B and then C, D... Thanx in advance for your advices, lights, ideas...

RE: Another question on Konqui and fish

As far as I know this is not possible yet with KDE3, only a direct connection is possible between two computers.

Note that in KDE4 it will be possible to embed KIO slaves into each other, so you can create a fish-into-fish connection which would solve the problem. But that's the long term thing.

On the short run, the only thing I can think of is to create a forward on the server and let connect computer.home on the port you assigned for the tunnel ->

Thanx again Bram85. In the present case, I'm not the admin of the gateway and more over it's a farm of dozens of computers. Cannot know on which one I'll arrive when connecting. I'm going to kindly wait KDE4. Hope it will be quickly included in Fedora Core 7, and not on Fedora Core 8.
