I am using a gateway to log in to my remote machines. When I use Konsole the tab name only shows the gateway name not the real remote server name. This is a problem for me as I am using multiple tabs which belong to logins via the gateway to different servers. As in this case I can only see the gateway name on all the tabs I cannot distinguish between these based on the actual server name I am connected to. Also the tab does not show the username, not even on the gateway computer. An example with my current "Profile Settings" for "Remote Tabs" [i.e. (%u)@%H] is:
I am logged on to myserver.example through gateway.example.
The tab in this case named like:
instead the one I would like to see:
Is there a workaround to this? Can the konsole get the username and "real hostnames" from the remote machines?

Unfortunately Konsole has no way of seeing what you are doing via the gateway connection you have established - so it can't determine if any additional remote connections have been established i'm afraid.
I'm not sure why the %u operator would fail to operate properly even locally though - does the username contain unusual characters, or is it set via ~/.ssh/config or a similar system?
