FreeBSD box A
FreeBSD box B

Can you copy files from box A to box B?

Box A can SSH into Work Firewall.
Work Firewall can SSH into Box B.
Box B can SSH into Home Firewall.
Home Firewall can SSH into Box A.

So - I can SEE the files I want to copy.  I can use "vi" to edit them.
But don't know how to get them directly from Box A to Box B. 

Right now I'm using "scp" to copy them to the firewall, then to the internal machine.

Is this a port forwarding kind of thing?  Anyone done it?
Didn't see anything like it in 'man scp' or a Google search.
