You discussed the question about using SSH agent forwarding, which as you discuss, is somewhat insecure as you are passing around keys. However, there's another method using SSH ProxyCommand. I use it on a daily basis from my linux and mac workstations and servers.

It's also more secure, because it proxies the encrypted traffic to the middleman host, not passing your keys. I use this on a daily basis to access various hosts on non-routable addresses, such as on our corp AWS account, or my homelab.

The gist below outlines the basics of using it in an SSH config file, so that you can simply run `ssh hostname` in your terminal, and have the proxy details handled automatically. It works fine on my linux and mac systems, and I would only assume it would work well on BSD too, since it's native SSH functionality.
