It doesn't. That's the great thing about it. From the app point of view, it's always connecting to a database on your local machine. You don't need to setup environment variables, hardcode credentials in code, etc, etc

Here is my PuTTY setup. Create and save a PuTTY session (just to make things easier) and then add the ports you want (replace 127.0.0.1 with the IP address of your server). When you connect to the session, PuTTY will setup everything:

If you want to make everything even easier, generate a ssh key pair. In that case you don't even need to provide a username/password.Just open the session and that's it.

BTW, we are talking about databases but this works for any kind o server. As long as it's something listening on a port, you can do this.

EDIT: Just realized something. Setp 5 is wrong. After step 4, save the session otherwise you'll need to do this everytime you connect. Then do step 5
