(Node.js) SSH Tunnel for Database Connection (such as ADO, ODBC, JDBC, etc.)

Demonstrates how to create an SSH tunneling client in a background thread of your application. This makes it possible to SSH tunnel database connections without the need for separate software (such as PuTTY) to be running.
