(VB.NET UWP/WinRT) Xero API through an SOCKS Proxy

This example demonstrates connecting through a SOCKS proxy w/ 2-legged OAuth for a Xero private application.

This example requires Chilkat v9.5.0.64 or later

' This example requires Chilkat v9.5.0.64 or later

' This sample code would typically be placed in a subroutine or function
' where the rest object is passed by reference.
' It does the OAuth1 setup and makes the initial connection.
Dim rest As New Chilkat.Rest

' Connect to the Xero server through an HTTP proxy, and then tell the REST object
' to use the socket connection.
Dim socket As New Chilkat.Socket

' Set the SOCKS proxy domain or IP address, port, and SOCKS version number (4 or 5)
socket.SocksHostname = "192.168.1.100"

' Other properties exist for specifying a SOCKS proxy login and password,
' but these are not used in this example.

' Connect through the SOCKS proxy..

' Use the SOCKS proxied TLS connection:
success = rest.UseConnection(socket,True)

    Debug.WriteLine(rest.LastErrorText)
    Exit Sub
End If


' OK, we're connected.  
' The UseConnection method has an internal reference to the underlying/internal socket.
' The application can does not need to keep its socket object in existence.

' Now setup the OAuth1 authenticator..

' private keys in a PFX and not in an unprotected PEM.
