A-ha! Step 3 was the non-intuitive one... I wondered where my port-forwardings
were going every time!

I also found when I digged in the manual a bit deeper, that putty
allows to add ssh-stype forwarding controls in the command line too!
So I have made a shortcut that includes
...putty -ssh -L5901:localhost:5900 -l Administrator <the-hostname>
and it comes up just fine.
Thanks for the tip.
