Metasploit — Pivoting

What is Pivoting?

Pivoting is the unique technique of using an instance (also referred to as a ‘plant’ or ‘foothold’) to be able to move around inside a network. Basically using the first compromise to allow and even aid in the compromise of other otherwise inaccessible systems. In this scenario, we will be using it for routing traffic from a normally non-routable network.
