Automating Putty logins

I am working on a client site where I have access to only putty and not allowed to install any software. But i can transfer files to that server and have office 2003 installed over there.. How can i configure my putty so that it remembers passwords for all the sessions which i normally use. Its a really pain to enter the password everytime for numerous different servers . Can someone suggest some way to automate my putty logins? Regds, Sach

Putty can't remember passwords, and shouldn't remember passwords. But like any competent SSH client it can use shared keys. Here's some directions.

If you're not allowed to even download executables on that machine, you can do the key creation part on your own computer and just bring the files.
