First of all and needless to say, you must not use illegally any
proxies and must follow the acceptable usage policy of each proxy.
Could you tell me the situation where such relay is necessary?
Secondly, the way to make multiple hops of proxies for your requirement
depends on what kind of the proxies they are and what kind of access
control they do.
I think any of VSAP, HTTP ACCPET, or extended SOCKS BIND/CONNECT, will
work for your purpose if P2 and P3 support SOCKS CONNECT or HTTP proxy
allowing unrestricted SSLtunnel (CONNECT method).
