You'll be fine. You just have to make sure SSH doesn't time out on you. I think this is a "feature" of putty and you need to either make it go into the background upon connection or, if through the GUI (which allows for post-connect scripts) check off the box for "keep the connection alive" or whatever the verbiage is. It's also wicked easy to set up the port forwarding with the GUI.
