remote login name
-c ccache --ccache = ccache
remote cred cache

forward forwardable credentials
-G , -no-forwardable
do not forward forwardable credentials

--version

is useful when you do not want to enter your password on a remote host but want to have your tickets one for example AFS.

In order for to work you will need to acquire your initial ticket with forwardable flag, i.e. kinit --forwardable

telnet is able to forward tickets by itself.
