  • Latest Changes

    - New feature: added "SCP" protocol for the graphical SSH-browser: MobaXterm can now use SCP in order to browse your remote server content. This experimental feature can be activated from your SSH session settings

    - Improvement: accelerated terminal display even in TrueColors mode

    - Improvement: with SCP protocol, SSH-browser does not open a new SSH connection anymore, but makes use of the existing terminal connection instead (SSH multiplexing)

    - Improvement: with SCP protocol, SSH-browser is not "connected" anymore and thus it stays alive as long as the terminal SSH connection is enabled

    - Improvement: greatly improved SSH-browser transfer speed when using the new SCP protocol

    - Improvement: if SSH-browser cannot connect using SFTP protocol, it will try SCP protocol instead

    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!!
