I'm quite new to ssh and so please bear with me. Can I use Putty to create a
tunnel between two computers on a network (or over the Internet) when
neither is a server? I'm not sure how Putty can "see" SSH on the other
I have generated keys on both computers, but I'm not sure where to put them,
or if that is relevant to such a session.
