Command-line connection utility.
Plink is part of PuTTY, install PuTTY yourself or download the (x86_x64) executable below.

-ssh- Force use of specific protocol.
-l- Username on the remote host.
-pw- Password for the user on remote host.
-R- Forward remote port to local address
In this scenario the localhost will expose the local port
3389 to the remote host on port
1234 via SSH.
plink.exe -ssh -l user -pw password -R 10.10.10.1:1234:127.0.0.1:3389 10.10.10.1
NOTE: The first time plink connects to a host, it will attempt to cache the host key, this needs interactive approval from the user. When not using an interactive shell, pipe the needed flag to plink. Add
cmd.exe /c echo y | in front of the
