(Tcl) SSH Tunnel with Dynamic Port Forwarding

Demonstrates how to start a background thread that runs a portable SSH tunnel w/ dynamic port forwarding that the foreground thread can use for establishing connections through an SSH tunnel.

# by calling UnlockBundle.  It requires a Bundle unlock code.

# Indicate that the background SSH tunnel thread will behave as a SOCKS proxy server
# with dynamic port forwarding:
CkSshTunnel_put_DynamicPortForwarding $tunnel 1

# We may optionally require that connecting clients authenticate with our SOCKS proxy server.
# To do this, set an inbound username/password.  Any connecting clients would be required to 
# use SOCKS5 with the correct username/password.
# If no inbound username/password is set, then our SOCKS proxy server will accept both
# SOCKS4 and SOCKS5 unauthenticated connections.

CkSshTunnel_put_InboundSocksUsername $tunnel "chilkat123"

# Now that a background thread is running a SOCKS proxy server that forwards connections
# through an SSH tunnel, it is possible to use any Chilkat implemented protocol that is SOCKS capable,
# such as HTTP, POP3, SMTP, IMAP, FTP, etc.  The protocol may use SSL/TLS because the SSL/TLS
# will be passed through the SSH tunnel to the end-destination.  Also, any number of simultaneous
# connections may be routed through the SSH tunnel.

# For this example, let's do a simple HTTPS request:
set url "https://www.ethereum.org/"

set http [new_CkHttp]

# Indicate that the HTTP object is to use our portable SOCKS proxy/SSH tunnel running in our background thread.
CkHttp_put_SocksHostname $http "localhost"
CkHttp_put_SocksPort $http 1080
CkHttp_put_SocksVersion $http 5

CkHttp_put_SocksPassword $http "password123"

CkHttp_put_SendCookies $http 1

    delete_CkGlobal $chilkatGlob

# Stop the background listen/accept thread:
set waitForThreadExit 1
set success [CkSshTunnel_StopAccepting $tunnel $waitForThreadExit]
