Hello All, I'm new to this forum, I hope this question hasn't already been asked. I am currently ssh into a server. I've examined the host file and found a host I need to gain access to. I do not have root privledges on the server i'm currently on. I may not even need to gain access to the server. I just have to figure out what server I need to connect to first before I can connect to the server I found. I can not ssh to it from the current server or the last server. for example 10.10.1.2 firstserver.net linux 10.10.1.3 currentserver.net *** 10.10.1.3 targetserver.net *** however I can't seem to figure out which server (because there are more in the host file) that I need to connect to first in order to connect to the target server. I've tried nmap and netstat and fping <- fping only works with sudoers and if you are not a sudoer the attempt gets reported, that's a very bad thing. hope you can help! Thanks!
