(VB.NET UWP/WinRT) Xero API through an SSH Tunnel

This example demonstrates connecting through an SSH Tunnel w/ 2-legged OAuth for a Xero private application.

This example requires Chilkat v9.5.0.64 or later

'   Multiple channels may coexist at the same time.)


'  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.
