| Create an SSH session
| Connect to specified IP and port, and authorize via SSH key.
| You can authorize via password by calling Auth::viaPassword($username, $password)
| You can authorize via SSH agent by calling Auth::viaAgent($username)

| Generate a random number, write it to a file on the remote server.
| Read the number back from the file.

| ----------------------------------------------
| Capture its output and echo it on the local screen.

| --------------------
| Simply send this file (demo.php) to the remote server.

| Open a shell on the remote server
| Open a shell.
| Execute a few commands.
| Logout.
| Print the output from the shell.
| The shell is automatically closed when callback returns.
