Think of kontact as simply an X-application. You're wishing to have
it run on your remote machine but display locally. At least I think
that's what you _really_ want.
Suppose my previous example didn't work, can `ssh' directly to
`computer-c' as follows.
Suppose you're on `computer-a' and you need to login to `computer-c'
First, in one teriminal, do the following:
computer-a$ ssh -L 8888:localhost:8888 computer-b
# -N - no remote command
computer-b$ ssh -N -L 8888:localhost:22 computer-c
In your second terminal, you can login directly to `computer-c' as
ssh -p 8888 localhost
