What is the equivalent of SSH -A?

I am looking to forward my agent through the machine I am logging into.

I have a terminal connection to that machine ("SSH Connection").
I want to log into another machine from that one.
I've done ssh-add but it's not working.

With another SSH client, I am able to do: ssh -A and that enables agent forwarding.

I don't know how to do this with RoyalTS. I've found a topic from 2 years ago, that mentions "run inside login shell" but I cannot find that feature.
I've also found some reference to "Allow Agent Forwarding" but I cannot find that feature.
I've also tried adding 
RunInsideLoginShell = Yes in "Custom Properties" but that did not help.

Please provide some insight on whether it is possible with RTS and how-to

Royal TS offers two plugins to do SSH. One is based on Rebex (default) and the other one is based on PuTTY. The PuTTY based plugin allows you to use Agent Forwarding. Once you switched to the PuTTY based plugin using the "Active Plugin" page (you need to close and reopen the properties), you can find the setting in the SSH Settings page:

Let me know if this helps.
