How can I translate this command to putty? I'm on a windows machine running putty.

ssh -f HOST_A.net.local -L 2000:HOST_F.net.loal:3306 -N

I'm following along with these links. But the -f flag doesn't seem to be represented.

I'm either too dense or too sleep deprived (or both) to figure this out right now.

plink HOST_A.net.local -L 2000:HOST_F.net.loal:3306 -N

There's no -f flag because neither PuTTY nor plink support detaching to background.
