At work we have several servers, but only one is SSH accessible outside of our local network. If I am working from home, I use PuTTY to connect to the one that is accessible, then SSH in to whatever server I want to work on.

Is there a way to automate this process? I see there are options for 'tunnels' and for a 'proxy', but neither of these seem to quite match what I'm trying to do.

Yes, In the options under Connection -> SSH. There is "Remote command:" just put in 'ssh server' or whatever string you want. The only downside to this is if you 'exit' the 2nd terminal it will auto kill the first one as well.
