Unix or Linux Question Running UNIX commands remotely in Windows box from Unix box avoid entering password

I am able to run the UNIX commands in a Windows box from a UNIX box through "SSH" functionality. But whenever the SSH connection is established between UNIX and Windows, password for windows box is being asked.

Is there a way to avoid asking password whenever the SSH connection is made? Can I store required passwords in a file and then use that file for password prompt whenever SSH is established?

You could configure it to use SSH keys instead?
So when it logs on, it authenticates using your ssh key rather than throwing up a prompt for a password?

Perhaps something like Putty and its suite of tools may help?

Not sure - I know this works going from Windows -> Unix.
