MobaXterm is your ultimate toolbox for remote computing. In a single Windows application, it provides loads of functions that are tailored for programmers, webmasters, IT administrators and pretty much all users who need to Professional handle their remote jobs in a more simple fashion.
- Native integration of WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux) into MobaXterm – run WSL into MobaXterm advanced terminal instead of Windows console and run graphical applications thanks to MobaXterm X server
- New experimental local terminal package “CygUtils64.plugin” comes with ZSH shell, 64-bit console utilities and improved apt-get packages manager – activate it from global settings, “terminal” tab
- Added a new global setting in MobaXterm order to choose which local shell to use (Bash, ZSH (64-bits), Cmd, Powershell, or one of the Linux WSL distributions)
- Graphical SFTP browser: When you log to a remote server using SSH, a graphical SFTP browser pops upon in the left sidebar. It allows you to drag and drop files directly from/to the remote server using a secure SFTP connection.
- X11 server: When you run an SSH, TELNET or RLOGIN/RSH session you will be able to display your remote applications directly on your local Windows PC. In an SSH session, there is no need to set the “DISPLAY” variable as MobaXterm uses X11-forwarding in order to ease and secure your work.
- Remote Unix desktop (XDMCP): Thanks to MobaXterm you can work on your remote Solaris desktop as if you were working locally on your Windows computer using the XDMCP protocol.
- Remote Windows desktop (RDP): Take control of your remote Windows computers/servers using the RDP protocol. Many RDP configuration settings are available in the session manager.
- SSH gateway: In ssh, telnet, RDP, VNC sessions, you can select an “SSH-gateway” (a.k.a. “jump host”) in order to tell MobaXterm to connect first to an SSH server before connecting to the end-server you want to reach in the end. This allows you to reach some servers behind a firewall and to secure your connection.
