# SSH tunnels to remote server #

Useful when you need to connect to local port on remote server throw ssh
tunnel. It works by opening a port forwarding ssh connection in the
background, using threads. The connection(s) are closed when explicitly
calling the `close` method of the returned SSHTunnelForwarder object.

## Ex 1: ##

import sshtunnel

with sshtunnel.open(
(ssh_host, ssh_port),
ssh_host_key=None,
ssh_username=ssh_user,
ssh_password=ssh_password,
ssh_private_key=None,
remote_bind_address=(REMOTE_HOST, REMOTE_PORT)) as server:

def do_something(port):
pass

print "LOCAL PORT:", server.local_bind_port

do_something(server.local_bind_port)

## Ex 2: ##

from sshtunnel import SSHTunnelForwarder

server = SSHTunnelForwarder(
ssh_address=('pahaz.urfuclub.ru', 22),
ssh_username="pahaz",
ssh_password="secret",
remote_bind_address=('127.0.0.1', 5555))

server.start()

print(server.local_bind_port)
# work with `SECRET SERVICE` throw `server.local_bind_port`.

server.stop()
