Remote desktop SSH situations

Specs: Windows XP
Hi all,

In short, i need to remote desktop to a computer which is somewhat few
proxies away from where i am now.

[A] -...- [B]

*[A] denotes the computer i am using now
*[B] denotes the computer that i want to connect to / remote desktop.
-...- few proxies in between.

[A] is behind a proxy (corporate)
[B] is behind a proxy (campus)

To connect to the internet, A has to set HTTP proxy.
To connect to B from (say, other computers that are not behind any
proxy), one would need to connect to a gateway computer(proxy) and
make tunnels to the destination computer [B].

Now, my situation is as follows:
i am at [A], via the HTTP proxy and SSH, i can connect to a linux
computer that is not behind any proxy.
When i am at that linux computer(virtually), i can connect to [B]
through ssh.

Now, again, the ultimate goal is to RDP to [B] from [A]. May i know
how i could make this happen? How should i set the tunnels?

I don't believe you understand the definition of the term 'proxy'. You don't seem to be using it correctly. Here's the definition as per Webopedia.

Now, we'll assume you meant "firewall" and we'll go on the basis that the client you're connecting from is behind one (a firewall) and the PC you wish to connect to is also behind one.

If this is the case, check the firewalls. They may support VPN tunnels and you could use them to create your endpoints.

Alternatively, you could, on the destination firewall, create a port forward that will send the Remote Desktop port (3389) to the LAN IP of the PC you wish to connect to.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
