DescriptionCreates a SSH tunnel on the session.
Please create, connect and authenticate a session for use as a tunnel.
For best result, please don't use the same session for other things while tunnel is running.
The tunnel allows currently one connection through it, e.g. run one tunnel per MySQL connection to go through the tunnel. If you need multiple tunnels, please create multiple SSH connections.
The MBS Plugin can spin of a new preemptive thread to run a tunnel to forward a SSH connection from local socket to remote server via SSH tunnel.
This works well e.g. for database access with MySQL.
