I am aware that it is possible to forward SSH from server A to server B by creating a tunnel.
What I am asking for is rather the red alternative on the schema above. Can this scenario be implemented:
- SSH to server A
- Server A tells client to go to server B instead
- Server B communicates directly with client over SSH
So basically a sort of proxy that after introducing the client-server to each other, he gets out of the communication.
I imagine using a firewall redirection doesn't offer much customization.
What I seek ultimately is a way to make access through SSH to git mirrors transparent for client depending on geolocation.
Advanced scenario scenario
- Client Pulling from server A and is closer to server B is redirected to B
- When pushing, client remains on server A
