I note the discussion of this issue in #3429667, so this is just putting on record that someone is interested in seeing the feature return.

As a sidenote, the vncviewer manpage (on Gentoo, user-submitted 1.2.0 ebuild) currently still lists the -via option. If the feature does return, I submit that the description could do with some clarification on how to correctly use it for complex use-cases, e.g. non-standard SSH or local/remote bound VNC ports, or specifying the username on the gateway host. I had to resort to a lot of googling and trial-and-error for my use-case (which combines all of the above!) ... before finally learning the feature wasn't actually implemented :/

    It's a shame this isn't a priority at Cendio. Ever since the auth bypass in realvnc, I assume most users deny access to the server apart from localhost, and therefore rely on the via option for quick and easy access to their servers. I guess I'll be staying at 1.1.0, since the changes won't likely have as much of an effect on my productivity as removing the via option will, which is a pity...
