My initial problem was that I used the external IP in the tunnel configuration. The following solves the problem Reference to documentation on PuTTY tunnels:

1) Set "Source Port" for the port on your local machine: 8000.

2) Set "Destination" to your internal IP address on the remote machine including port 8000 as highlighted in the screenshot and press "add".

3) Make sure to save the configuration afterwards.
