Hi All

I have implemented SSH tunneling using *libssh2* library and added the
logic into pgAdmin3. With current implementation SSH tunnel will be created
using password as authentication mode. I'll work on the certificate based
authentication. I have attached two patch files 1) SSHTunnel.patch
2) vcxproj.patch (Only for Windows).

Below are the steps to build pgadmin

   - Download libssh2 source code from

On Windows:-

   - Compile libssh2 library on Windows
      - "libssh2.dsw" file is available in win32 folder.
      - Specify path of the OpenSSL's include folder in
      "Properties->C++->General->Additional Include Directories"
      - Specify path of the OpenSSL and Zlib's lib folder in
      "Properties->Linker->General->Additional Library Directories"
   - Create new environment variable LIBSSH2 and set the path of the
   libssh2 folder.
   - Compile pgAdmin3.

On Linux:-

   - To compile libssh2 run ./configure, make and make install.
   - Compile pgAdmin3.

Please review the patch and let me know the review comments.
