I have a server that is only SSH-accessible to machines within a network and my only access to that network from the outside world is a single publicly-SSH-accessible node.

Is there some way that I can mount the nested machine from the outside?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Use SSH tunneling:

ssh -L

you may then make an ssh connection to the internal node using a local port:

ssh -p 2022 localhost

Or you can do a SOCKS proxy with ssh (-D <portnumber>) and "wrap" your ssh connection with tsocks. – Jimmy Hedman Apr 16 '10 at 11:22
