Ok. I read about channel and session in libssh. So, if i understood
correctly, one channel for one command. And if i change working directory
in one (like send "cd working_directory)", other channel will do not now
about my changes anything. So, if i want to do smth like this:
cd new_dir
tar cf test.tar test.txt
cd old_dir
i must to use the same channel.
But this way leads me to LIBSSH2_ERROR_CHANNEL_REQUEST_DENIED when call
So, what else i don't understand or don't know about libssh. And, maybe, i
try to solve problem, by using wrong way? If so, in what way i can remote
execute shell command in specified (by me) directory?

I would be very grateful for any advice.
