I need to RDP to a terminal windows server 2003 OS and then RDP from there to my destination remote host. Same thing to SSL, first SSH to a CentOS via putty, then SSH to my destination remote CentOS host.

This is actually 2 different questions but same purpose. Is there any tool that can tunneling my connection, so I can directly RDP/SSH to destination. Thanks.

Check the options to mstsc for exactly what you need, but it should go something like this:

  1. Create RDP connection to host1
  2. Specify mstsc host2.rdp as the program to run
  3. Execute host1.rdp

If you don't mind having to enter your credentials, you could just use mstsc /v:host2 in step 2.
