add an option to use an intermediate host to connect to the wanted destination host.
this is needed for example if you need to connect via a "jumphost" which is accessible, but destination host is in a secured zone.

Need this option.
As I use it in my local terminal for example:
ssh -L 8180:privat_IP:8080 -i myKey.pem ec2-user@public_ip_jumpHost
