Possible to setup a SSH port forwarding only (!) in background without showing a Terminal ...

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Whenever I start a SSH port forwarding session with either Windows based Putty
or linux based OpenSSH
an additional SSH terminal window is created and shown.

Is there a way to created just a background port forwarding session WITHOUT such
a ssh terminal
window in foreground?
