Executing application on Windows from Unix machine

I have two machines, one running Windows and another one Unix over a network. I want to execute a batch file on the Windows machine using a script running on the Unix machine.

I have tried creating a rsa key and transferrring it to the destination machine but it doesn't work. The purpose was to disable entering password. The code is given below.

ssh-keygen -t rsa

Pointers on how this can be done will be greatly appreciated.

What mechanism are you using to get the UNIX box to tell the Windows machine what to do?

Do you have some version of SSHD running on the Windows machine?

Executing application on Windows from Unix machine

I'm using ssh to connect with Windows from Unix. The command is given below

ssh -X username@servername

I do not have SSHD running on Windows machine. My purpose is also to bypass the password when establishing the connection.

My interpretation from the title is you want the windows box to be the server, and the UNIX box to be the client, is this so? If so you need some agent on the Windows box that will accept incoming connections.
