Is there an equivalent -F option in the psftp (the one bundled with Putty)?

I am trying to connect to a VM that requires using a ProxyCommand.

Host *.<domain_here>
User kapitanluffy
ProxyCommand plink.exe <proxy_command_here>

I checked the sftp docs and the psftp docs. It seemed like psftp does not have that option.

You can create a putty session and specify the proxy in it. Then use

psftp.exe -load <session name>
