"perfect, yet free"

August 22, 2015  |  By Manali Pise

This one has all the premium features of a regular ssh/scp client and they work seemlessly. I have been using this software for long and havent found any bugs or glitches yet!


Sometimes I feel this should be a paid software, but it being free was what made me download it ;-)

"Powerful SSH emulator for Windows"

April 07, 2010  |  By m_painkiller

2010-04-07 08:23:37  |  By m_painkiller

 |  Version: Xshell 3.0 build 0263


Very powerful terminal emulator, with many additional functions, configurable and flexible also for the very fastidious user and many automatic functions.


Not completely free - if you installing it with default settings, after evaluation period asking for registration and purchasing every time you starting it, and comes with limited abilities if installed for personal use.


Great and highly recommended tool for any person who need remote access for any purpose. Completely integrated into Windows environment, easy-to-install, intuitive and user-friendly but powerful and flexible. Can be used for remote Linux/Unix system administration, programming, QA needs, but also as Serial console emulator and more. Highly customizable.

"sftp error causes stall"

June 25, 2004

 |  Version: Xshell 1.2


My primary use for this was going to be moving files from my windows box to my linux box via sftp. Every time an sftp file transfer fails, the program stops accepting input from the keyboard, which is a bit frustrating.
