    // This example assumes the Chilkat API to have been previously unlocked.
    // See Global Unlock Sample for sample code.

    let imap = CkoImap()!

    // The SSH hostname may be a hostname or an 
    // IP address, such as "192.168.1.108".
    // The port is typically 22 (the standard port for SSH).
    var sshHostname: String? = "www.mysshserver.com"
    var sshPort: Int = 22

    // Connect to an SSH server and establish the SSH tunnel:
    var success: Bool = imap.sshOpenTunnel(sshHostname, sshPort: sshPort)
    if success != true {
        print("\(imap.lastErrorText!)")
        return
    }

    // Authenticate with the SSH server via a login/password
    // or with a public key.
    // This example demonstrates SSH password authentication.
    // Note: This is not authenticating with the IMAP server, it is
    // for authenticating with the SSH server, which is separate.
    success = imap.sshAuthenticatePw("mySshLogin", sshPassword: "mySshPassword")
    if success != true {
        print("\(imap.lastErrorText!)")
        return

    // OK, the SSH tunnel is setup.  The IMAP component may
    // be used exactly the same as usual, except all communications
    // are sent through the SSH tunnel.

    // Connect to an IMAP server via the SSH tunnel.
    // Because the SSH tunnel has been previously setup,
    // this does not establish a direct connection with the IMAP
    // server.  It directs the SSH server to establish the connection.

    // In this example, the IMAP server requires SSL/TLS.  The TLS connection
    // will be enclosed within the SSH tunnel.
