• passwords management for SSH, RDP, VNC, SFTP (on demand password saving)
• easy graphical file transfer using drag and drop during SSH sessions
• advanced SSH tunnels creation tool (graphical port forwarding builder)
• tasks automation using scripts or macros
You can also use some of the free plugins in order to extend MobaXterm capabilities!

Release Notes

Improvement: when SSH-browser is disabled, remote-monitoring feature is now also disabled, in order to avoid issues on Cisco routers

Improvement: the experimental CygUtils64 plugin can be used with MobaXterm. If you want to test it, you can download it at

Bugfix: fixed the "live-unpack" mechanism for local terminal plugins - some plugins were not working properly in "installed mode" or when using "persistent root"

Bugfix: fixed some issues with X server detection which led to the "X" icon to stay red whereas X11 server was started

Bugfix: fixed some issues with "Follow terminal folder" when remote monitoring was enabled
