I have found it slow to connect, but it does get there.

You can set the password in the Mathematica front end if I recall 
correctly.


The other probable place is to use public-key/private-key with a null 
password and log on without any password at all. That is only practical 
if you are sure nobody else can get at the system. Whilst I have 
regularly connect from my home box to remote machines without passwords, 
I would not do the reverse.
