The local machine is running Windows 7. I'm not sure what the other machine
is running on, but I assume it can handle ssh. If it helps, I usually
connect to it manually via an https web link, and then after entering my
user name and password in a Firepass session manager it runs an active-x
cache cleaner program and will then let me navigate to server B which is
behind the firewall.
