ssh access to remote server without password - Windows

I transfer files from local machine (windows 7) to remote server (linux) the command line scp , but every time i have to write the password .

Is there a way to configure my machine ( windows) and remote server to accept my transfers without typing password every time. but only for this machine?

Thank you so much

Answer

Use ssh keys. There is a lot of tutorials how to set them up. THere is also documentation describing how to create your key, store it on the server and use the key to scp.
