"A swiss-army knife of Linux core-tools - for windows"

November 16, 2014  |  By ibitedou

2014-11-16 07:06:30  |  By ibitedou

 |  Version: MobaXterm 7.3

Pros

Tabbed window for managing all your remote connections as well as local shells.
TinyBox emulates Linux on windows without the hassle of installing packages.
Pramatic tool; tweakable; under active development; great for students.

Cons

Personal edition customization is limited.

Summary

Get it, it's simplifies the hell out of connecting to Servers as well as helping others do likewise. Being able to do "Linux" commands on the fly, without hassle, is very handy.

"The ultimate network tool!"

January 22, 2014  |  By CraigJones31

2014-01-22 06:49:20  |  By CraigJones31

 |  Version: MobaXterm 6.5

Pros

- SSH sessions made easy (passwords saving, automatic tunneling, ...)
- Graphical files transfer using SFTP browser
- Embedded X server

Cons

I wish the professional edition was given for free too!

Summary

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.

For my personal need, the free edition provides enough functions, but I am considering purchasing the pro edition in order to customize it ;-)

"Installs malware"

December 18, 2013  |  By gar----

2013-12-18 06:01:41  |  By gar----

 |  Version: MobaXterm 6.5

Pros

Possibly the program works well?

Cons

I thought CNET was a trusted download source, but apparently not. This exe installed three programs and a bunch of Chrome add-ons. Disgusting. Go to their real website.

"Good features with stability issues"

February 14, 2013  |  By Vanhiep1

2013-02-14 22:05:40  |  By Vanhiep1

 |  Version: MobaXterm 6.1

Pros

I like all the features it provides, especially the fact that I can scroll in vim using the mouse!

Cons

Stuck after running for a day or so. It becomes unresponsive and seems to cause issue with windows (7). This happens with version 6.1. I have not tried older verdions yet!

Summary

Good if you dont leave it running overnight, which for me is a deal breaker since I often run scripts overnight.

"Good product"

June 21, 2011  |  By Roncnet2000

2011-06-21 18:33:40  |  By Roncnet2000

 |  Version: MobaXterm 3.0

Pros

xterm, built in cgywin (unix like interface on windows) so i do not have to use cmd; i could run find, grep, vi to open dos file under windows.

Cons

not major,cannot have different colours for different unix terminal, helps identify production server vs developement with colouring as in putty. cannot run multiple instances on the machine, cannot tear out tab; helpful during dev on multi monitors.

Summary

for a free version i cannot ask for more so i have given 4*'s.
product has not crashed, very solid. definitely worth a try.
