Hi Michael,

I've once again hit the same stumbling block we discussed back at the start of last year:

Googling finds several similar questions on Stack Overflow, and I've added one of my own:

To pick up from your email above:

 +-----------+      +------------+
 |           | ---> | transit@   |--+
 | you@      | ssh  +------------+  | sudo
 |           |      | user@      |<-+
 +-----------+      +------------+
   localhost          remotehost

How do I set up proxies such that I can do the above process but where none of 'transit', 'user' or 'remotehost' are hard coded in a config file?

I really want to be able to use a path such as:


How do I do that? What do I need in the proxies list?



PS: In trying to find out about this, I wanted to see if any development had been done that would help, which sprouted more questions:

- is where tramp is maintained?

- is the correct change log to be looking at? I hope not, since it doesn't mention either proxies arriving or multi: going away...
