Try this (one line) :
..path_to_plink.exe..\plink -L 80:localhost:80

(plink.exe is a program in the same directory as putty)

Answer yes if needed (for the possible message about the host), then 
provide the password when prompted.
It will display a prompt.
Leave this window alone until you are done.

Open your browser, and connect to http://localhost

Miracle !

When you are done, in the command window of plink, enter exit.
