It may be worth considering forwarding from a non-standard port rather
than port 22. The ssh command option to specify the port on the client
end is -p <n>, or enter into the session dialogue box on PuTTY.

Note: Security by obscurity is no security at all, but using a
non-standard port should help screen out the "background noise" of
automated password-guessing attacks, etc, should make any real attacks
(if any) more obvious.
