There are numbers of tutorials on the net on how to configure access from one machine to another without typing a password.
Here is the real way to do it.

ssh-keygen -t rsa

Then you need to copy the public key to the other server

ssh-copy-id -i .ssh/id_rsa.pub>

Make sure that ssh-agent is running.
