Haven’t used Emacs/tramp since 2003 and am freshly impressed by its capabilities: It lets me edit files on a remote server, connected through a proxy server using my locally installed and carefully tweaked Emacs.

Emacs rocks!

emacs/local → proxy → server/file

I found the easiest was to add the ssh/proxy conf to ~/.ssh/config and then just do:

C-x C-f /ssh:server:/file

The .ssh/config part is:

Host server
  Hostname server
  User remote-user
  ProxyCommand ssh proxy -W %h:%p
