"The Windows SSH client PuTTY is incredibly useful; even more
useful is setting it up with a private/public keypair.
"First, use PuTTYgen (available from the download page) to
generate a new keypair. Specify a password, and save both parts of
the keypair. Paste the public part (shown in the Puttygen window)
into the ~/.ssh/authorized_keys file on your remote host, and save
"Now, open the PuTTY configuration window; load the config for
your remote host (create and save it if necessary)."
