Enable tunneling in the Enhanced GUI

With the addition of the Enh GUI, there is a redirect during login. This is causing the failure, and it's unfortunately a permanent restriction and does not work with tunnelinmg.
This RFE is to have that functionality of tunneling enabled in the Enh GUI.

    Hi Fred,

    Thank you for submitting the request. We have evaluated the request and determined as not in the product roadmap in the near future. Hence marking it as declined for now.

    Please implement this RFE in future HMC code. We rely on tunneling out to several customer sites to gain access to our customer's HMCs.
