10.5: A fix for failing SSH Bouncing
Authored by: Soliman on Mar 24, '09 09:44:48AM
Actually this has to do with netcat since the hint page you mention creates an executable for no good reason (even worse, it does fork a shell for nothing): the standard way is to include directly the netcat command in the ProxyCommand line of your .ssh/config
ProxyCommand ssh mybouncehost nc -w 1 %h %p
However, as mentionned, netcat is a bit tricky in the way it handles timeouts, creating either failures or even zombie processes on the bouncehost. Usually a few seconds is enough.
