I was at first rather mystified by Mike's answer referencing SSH proxy tab,
as I didn't see it in my X2Go client, but updating to 126.96.36.199 addressed
The proxy option times out when I try it on my system. I'm not able to
check "Show Details" during the connection attempt to track what's
My connection from the OS X Terminal is:
$ ssh -X -A -t [email protected]
ssh -A -X [email protected]
I have internal.ip.address listed as the server in my connection
preferences and andreas as the login. I've checked "Use Proxy server for
SSH connection" in preferences and added external.ip.address as the host.
"Same login as on X2Go Server" is checked. Passwords are different, so
