  • Latest Changes

    - New feature: Added "MobApt", a new package manager based on the great "apt-cyg" tool, for automatic installation of Cygwin utilities through internet

    - New feature: Added CRON service and "crontab" tool

    - New feature: You can now specify a persistent root folder ("/"). This is especially useful if you want to install packages using "MobApt" and you want to keep them across MobaXterm restarts

    - New feature: You can now specify an INI file using the "-i" commandline parameter. You can use a local path (C:\some\place\MobaXterm.ini), a network share (\\MyServer\shared\MobaXterm.ini) or an URL (http://mywebserver/MyConfigFile.ini)

    - Improvement: Multi-selection is now enabled in sessions tree

    - Bug fix: Reconnection message window height has been increased

    Excellent tool for SSH, SCP, SFTP, RDP connections with an embedded X11 server!
    MobaXterm is really convenient, especially when you have multiple SSH servers to reach, files to transfer and graphical applications to launch remotely, and when you care about security.

    In fact this is a demo with many limitations (for example the FTP server runs for 60 seconds only)- see the features of personal and professional editions in the link below:

    quite simply. Brilliant.
    Attractive to look at (and configurable)
    Fast to load and portable
    Low memory usage
    Incredibly feature rich
    Supports plugins (and there are several)
    Actively developed (unlike Putty)
    and 100% free.

    Just an amazing bit of software

    Just brilliant! Discovered v5.1 and never looked back. All my needs in one place. Can't ask for anything better. Kudos to the author.

    The best alternative to Exceed, Xming or PuTTY : this program does everything in a small portable executable: X server, telnet, SSH, graphical SFTP...

    I can't imagine connecting to my remote Linux server using another program.

    A must have!!
