How do you set up pub key auth for Dreamweaver's sftp client on a windows box?

I have clients who want to connect to a unix webserver, that is running openssh, from Dreamweaver's sftp client on a windows box using only public key authentication. Is this possible using Dreamweaver's internal sftp client?

Everything I've heard tells me that Dreamweaver doesn't support SSH keys. You could, however, use an SSH tunnel set up with public keys under PuTTY. They could FTP over the tunnel and connect just fine. You could even use a handy batch file to start up PuTTY with the tunnel and run Dreamweaver.

Here's a little example. Using MySQL but the idea is the same.

not sure if this helps but...
Dreamweaver MX and later support sftp natively, but you have to have PasswordAuthentication turned on in sshd_config on the host.
