MobaXterm Pro


Some time ago, William Taur of Mobatek sent me the latest Pro version of their MobaXterm product, and very nice it is. Mostly in the past I used the excellent WinSCP but then I started using the free version of MobaXterm with great success. Excellent as it is, if you have lots of connections, you soon get tired of the limits to the number of saved sessions and so I’m excited to now own the Pro version.

Update August 12, 2019 – I now have version 12.1 thanks to an email conversation with Alicia Boschat of Mobatek.

MobaXterm for those who don’t know, is a Windows program which handles lots and lots of communication protocols including SSH (like WinSCP), Telnet, RSH, XDMCP, RDP, VNC, FTP, SFTP, Serial and many more and also has a range of servers including TFTP, FTP, HTTP, SSH/SFTP, Telnet, NFS, VNC, Cron and Iperf.

There is also a built-in package manager but I’ve not figured that out yet. All in all a sheer work of art. Read all about it on their site. They have other products but I’ll leave it with you to progress (or not).

  1. Interesting. Its been a while since I have played with XWindows managers under Windows. Do you think they would be willing to do an offer for your membership base?

  2. Been using the free version for a while now, it does just what I need, but the limit of 12 sessions is frustrating.
    Would upgrade to the Pro version but its too expensive and subscription based.

  3. I have been using this for a year now. Just a great application that has more capability and features than you can shake a stick at.
