can't create a windows service

Hi,

I tried to create a windows service using the srvany program, but it didn't work.

Here is the command line I would like to make into a service.
c:\windows\plink.exe -T -i c:\windows\pk.ppk -R 1729:foo.com:80 bryanh@server

It is a command to tunnel a port over ssh.  It doesn't run in the background, it just waits for me to press [control]-c.  While it is running it forwards information to localhost:1729 to port 80 on foo.com.

I would like to always run this when the computer is on.  It doesn't have to be a service if there is another way.  Does anybody know how to do this?

Thanks!

add "c:\windows\plink.exe -T -i c:\windows\pk.ppk -R 1729:foo.com:80 bryanh@server"

as a registry value to the Run registry key?
