Hi Scott,

you actually have 2 options: 1) using putty as you do usually or 2) use MySQL Workbench's built-in SSH support.

With putty it's the same as we any other application accessing the remote network. Your tunnel forwards a local port ot a remote machine. Let Workbench connect to that local port and the normal tunneling process should happen.

Alternatively, you can use an SSH connection type and configure the SSH details there. No need for putty then. See also for several questions + answers about this.
