Post SFTP config on linux access required from windows client through Authorization keys


I want to configure a new sftp server on rhel5.
How could i access sftp from windows.I googled and found that winscp or filezilla tools being used to connect from windows.
More important configuration involved in this task is connecting sftp server using authorized keys from windows.
Is it possible to do it,if so any body can help me configuration steps as i am new to linux.

Thanks in Advance

I always use filezilla for Windows SFTP to Linux, which is actually SSH/SCP. Other than that, cygwin scp works quit nicely and wouldn't suprise me if the unixtools for Windows had scp.exe.... HELLO GOOOOOOGLE!

Thanks for Reply ,
I am already using filezilla and winscp.But i want to authorize user through private/public key pair , not through username and password.
Can i use any browser to connect to sftp server? Is it possible?
