Ok, it's something like this:

first off, set up a tunneled connection, you connect to local port 2200 which connects you in turn with the remote ssh

note that you will have to remove the record for in ~/.ssh/known_hosts if you had one originally, or this will not work

ssh -N -L 2200:b.example.org:22 c.example.org

then scp through it (or rsync, or sftp)

scp -P 2200 foo bar baz user at localhost:

sftp -oPort=2200 localhost

rsync --rsh="ssh -p 2200" foo bar baz user at localhost:
