I am trying to establish a connection in SSH, to a remotehost...

I am having the following information from my company(example, not real data)...

ssh -p 1234 -L 4321: user3@ -N

They asked me to connect using Linux command, in their environment...

I am trying to connect with the details through my PUTTY terminal from my personal computer...

Which data to give in which place for PUTTY connection?

Instead of using putty as front end, use Plink in command line :

plink.exe -P 1234 -L 4321 user3@ -N

See and to download it :

plink, does it work on windows??? Nothing happens when I double click on the exe... – Mannii88 Jun 9 '12 at 18:56
As you can see, it's a *.exe file, so yes, it's for windows. Download the executable, open a windows terminal cmd, type chdir <PATH/TO/EXE/DIR> and my command line. – Gilles Quenot Jun 9 '12 at 18:59
