MobaXterm is a Windows tool for remote computing that has a tabbed SSH client, X11 servers, client network tools, and other features. It offers all the essential tools for software engineers, system administrators, webmasters, and other IT professionals. MobaXterm has  a range of network tools for remote computing as well as all common Unix commands to offer. Users can run the software to manage a computer system remotely in a simple and concise way.

MobaXterm allows developers to use a graphical SFTP browser while using an SSH remote server connection. Thanks to this feature, a system admin can edit remote files in a fast and efficient way. The interface of the tool is straightforward and easy-to-use. There’s a console where a developer can run and display commands and a toolbar with the list of AX servers, Linux devices, Mac and Windows computers, PuTTY sessions, etc.

How Can MobaXterm Boost Your PC?

MobaXterm enables remote session management. There’s a wide variety of sessions a developer can start - Rlogin, Telnet, RDP, VNC, XDMCP, FTP, and many more. The logs of each session are saved and displayed in a folder in a left sidebar. A user can also add files to the remote server by dragging and dropping them from the sidebar to the console. A secure FTP  connection is established and saved during the file transfer from the device to the remote server.

MobaXterm enables multi-execution as well - basically, you can run the same commands on several remote servers simultaneously. This saves the development time tremendously since you can write the code once and execute it everywhere. There’s also a wide range of embedded tools available - network and ports scanners, list of all the hardware devices and running procedures, and so on.

A system admin can manage embedded servers as well. With MobaXterm, you can create multiple network daemons that require no additional management tools. Remote Windows Desktop is another handy feature that the program e offers. Thanks to this one, you can manage multiple remote sessions and servers. The RDP mode has dozens of customizable features that provide IT specialists with better control of the system.
