Skip over intermediate server via SSH

At my university we have an SSH gateway for remote access to our departmental Linux network. The gateway itself has a very minimal install of Linux so we generally SSH into unused workstation.

The problem is that sometimes I want to use graphical applications remotely and the SSH gateway does not have X11 installed on it so using ssh -X doesn't seem work.

Is there any way to tunnel X11 through from one of the workstations through the SSH gateway?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    
See Forward SSH traffic through a middle machine. or Basic ssh tunneling through generic linux ssh server/client. The gateway doesn't need to (indeed, cannot) know anything about X and other forwardings. –  Gilles Sep 29 '10 at 20:07

So you're essentially SSH'ing twice at least? Like you --> gateway --> workstation?

I think you'll have to experiment with SSH tunneling.
