Today I will share with you one more terminal software: MobaXterm. MobaXterm is a enhanced terminal for Windows with X11 server, tabbed SSH client, network tools with much more functions. Also the official free version is also enough for most use cases!
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 handle their remote jobs in a more simple fashion.
MobaXterm provides all the important remote network tools (SSH, X11, RDP, VNC, FTP, MOSH, …) and Unix commands (bash, ls, cat, sed, grep, awk, rsync, …) to Windows desktop, in a single portable exe file which works out of the box. More info on supported network protocols
There are many advantages of having an All-In-One network application for your remote tasks, e.g. when you use SSH to connect to a remote server, a graphical SFTP browser will automatically pop up in order to directly edit your remote files. Your remote applications will also display seamlessly on your Windows desktop using the embedded X server. See demo
The only downside: you can’t save the SSH link to the cloud! But that’s fine. After all, the SSH connection IP port account password is very sensitive content, who knows whether it is safe on the “cloud”!
There is a recommended feature for this software, which you can use the portable version, put the tools on the U disk, and manage your own server at any time on any computer!
