Thanks for the info, no need for it anymore, though. I use Putty on 
Windows and connect to machine A and then scp from B to C. (That's why I 
said "no GUI".) So I needed agent forwarding from A to B to C. I just 
realized that Pageant (from Putty) provides agent forwarding if I set the 
sessions to allow this. So, I now connect directly to B and scp to C and 
don't need to run the agent on B anymore as the chain is short enough.
The few times I need a forwarded session directly from the console I'll 
use the method Tony explained. Thank you both!
