I've used SSH tunneling in the past to connect SQLPro Studio with remote MySQL databases, but never with LC.

And although i was pretty sure that it will work with LC, i just did a quick test with LC to be 100 percent sure.

Yes it's possible. 

I have created a small quick start guide for Windows some weeks ago, but unfortunately that is in German.

I could translate that to English and add some additional information for macOS. But it would take 1 or 2 days.

If you could wait i could send you that guide.
