I have a jump server that I need as a bridge when running commands on another server.
I set up the jump server in my ssh config to be
hopping and on the jump server, I set the final destination as
ssh -t hopping ssh lb3
The above command works. I end up at my final destination and my terminal is interactive.
However, when I want to run more complex commands I seem to have trouble with correct escaping…
For example, I’m trying to run this:
ssh -t hopping ssh lb3 "varnishadm -S /opt/varnish_secret -T 127.0.0.1:6082 ban 'req.url ~ .'"
Command failed with error code 106 expected conditional (~, !~, == or !=) got "/home/username"
I have tried a few different ways of escaping but I can’t say that I really know what I’m doing in this case. Does anyone who is more experienced know what I need to escape to make it work?
