Example 1 - MYSQL Query Browser

# open up the local (L) port 4000 (this is just a random port, you can pick others) on localhost and
# tunnel it to port 3306 on 123.456.789.101, without an interactive terminal (-N)

ssh -L 4000:localhost:3306 123.456.789.101 -N

# then in 'mysql query browser' we are able to connect to localhost:4000 with the DB credentials
# required for 123.456.789.101 and it will make the connection to 123.456.789.101's sql server on port 3306
