MobaXterm is an enhanced terminal with an X server and a set of Unix commands (GNU/Cygwin) packaged in a single portable exe file. MobaXterm includes a great multitab native Windows terminal, a new X server based on X.Org for easily export your Unix/Linux display and a lot of new GNU Unix commands. You can also use some of the free plugins for extending MobaXterm capabilities.

  • Latest Changes

    - New feature: added a new "inline search" feature which allows you to highlight search terms directly into the terminal itself

    - New feature: added an internal SSH agent "MobAgent" which allows you to automatically load SSH keys at MobaXterm startup and to forward them

    - Improvement: the keyboard shortcut for "Paste inside terminal" can now be modified (default: Shift+INSERT). Remember that there is no shortcut for "COPY" as copying is performed automatically when you select some text

    - Improvement: you can now scroll in Tmux using Shift+MouseWheel if you have the "set-window-option -g mode-mouse on" feature enabled in your ".tmux.conf" file

    - Improvement: enhanced compatibility with Emacs in terminal mode (better scrolling, better selection using shift+arrows, better home/end/arrows keys handling, better Ctrl+Alt shortcuts handling)

    - Improvement: added "Pageant" support for SSH tunnels and SSH gateways

    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!!
