Starting a PuTTY session from the command-line

I think I’ve probably done this before (the links in my browser were marked as visited), but today I wanted to create a desktop/toolbar shortcut icon (with shortcut key) to a saved PuTTY session called “peace tunnel”. The “peace tunnel” opens an SSH session to a development server called “peace” and automatically configures a tunnel from port 80 on the localhost to port 80 on the server, so I can check on the progress of a web application under development.

Anyway, I found the documentation for Starting a session from the command line and basically to load my saved session called “peace tunnel” I had to run the command:

 putty.exe -load "peace tunnel"

Too easy.
