If the @option{su} or @option{sudo} option shall be performed on
another host, it could be comnbined with a leading @option{ssh} or
@option{plink} option. That means, @value{tramp} connects first to
the other host with non-administrative credentials, and changes to
administrative credentials on that host afterwards. In a simple case,
the syntax looks like
@file{@value{prefix}ssh@value{postfixhop}user@@host|sudo@value{postfixhop}@value{postfix}/path/to/file}.
