"Access by MobaXterm terminal"

What do you like best?

In my company I work as a network administrator and configure and maintain the network equipment. To make these configurations I need a tool to access them through different access methods such as SSH, Telnet, VNC among others. Mobaxtrem represents a solution for all the acesos that I need. This tool is used daily to access the core router, distribution and access router to perform corrective and preventive maintenance. I also use it because it gives me the help of VNC to connect with PC and laptop computers that is my internal network.

What do you dislike?

One of the things that presents weakness with other tools is that Moba does not have a log storage of the configurations that the teams perform. The configuration logs is a file that is used to verify the configurations that we carry out in order to keep track of the step-by-step we take, since we are 3 administrators and we need to be aware of the configuration that each one has made. For this the tool presents a weakness.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This tool has helped me to take access to the network equipment and servers to make the necessary configurations for the operation of the company.

" Access using MobaXTerm"

What do you like best?

to access my network equipment I use the MOBA tool that gives me greater ease to access the equipment configuration console through ssh or telnet connections, it also provides the solution to connect via VNC or serial port. This tool gives you a set of solutions to access any equipment that another tool does not provide. It also allows me to access equipment such as laptops or desktop PC.

What do you dislike?

One of the faults that this tool has is the logs of the previous configurations made in the equipment that was previously accessed. For example when I make configurations of my network equipment router or sw I need to know what were the previous configurations to remember the previous configuration

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has helped me at the moment I am not physically in the place where the failure occurred, this tool gives me the option to access through ssh or telnet or with the installed vnc tool.

What Remote Desktop solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"MobaXterm, takes the remote session start beyond what was thought"

What do you like best?

As a secure remote connection method it does not do more than mobaxterm. The tool is the tendency of the administrators which we have for the administration of the network. Home session that can be established is done in an advanced way, for example you can make simultaneous connections with a text editor, interacting and working. The tool supports different protocols such as ssh and telnet, in addition to the endless number of tools such as network scanners. The graphical interface is one of the best graphs of all the modulators of remote connections. Only with the help that presents by means of labels that differentiate, the specific words and commands.

What do you dislike?

The only detail as tool error or dislike as a network administrator, is the way in which it saves by default the connection passwords you already make, resulting in a security hole. However, otherwise the tool does not have any problem.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want to have a secure and guided connection for a better administration, mobaxterm is the tool that gives the right initiative to all server or network administrators.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use the tool to manage the work tools, such as routers and switches, has allowed to connect securely to these different types of equipment through this terminal, now the administration has seemed easier

"Not just a PuTTY Alternative"

What do you like best?

MobaXterm has taken remote login utility to a level far beyond i ever expected. I have been a Putty, RDC and other individual utility user for a long time in my career. Ever since i started using MobaXterm, there is no looking back.

It has a pretty slick interface with lots of options. It saves SSH sessions and passwords (if you ask it to ) and that's very helpful when you are working on multiple servers all the time.

When connected to SFTP, it allows you to drag and drop files back and forth. No more mget, mput commands required :)

X11 forwarding is also very smooth and one time setup.

I love the way you can have multiple SSH sessions in split mode and type commands on all of them synchronously.

It supports so many different protocols, we don't use all of them but it supports most of what we use.

It also lets you save macro session/recording of work you are doing on the system. This is helpful to keep a record of what was done and for knowledge transfers.

What do you dislike?

It's hard to think what i dislike about MobaXterm since it's been an amazing help in improving our productivity while working with remote systems.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a great tool. The free version allows saving only 20 sessions but doesn't restricts you working with most of it's features.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use MobaXterm for connecting to remote machines for SSH, SFTP and remote windows machines. We use it to work on our remote linux and windows servers.

"My experience using the SSH tool"

What do you like best?

with the moba tool it allows me to access my network equipment through the processes necessary to access them. The protocols that I use to access the equipment is the SSH secure console protocol when I want to access them in a broken manner, previously I configure the SSH access on the computers, be it router, sw firewall, among others. And also when I do not have access to the equipment remotely I access via console. The moba tool also has other access methods such as vnc, telnet, Rsh, RDP.

What do you dislike?

One of the things that I do not share is the sessions that do not store the logs of the previous configurations. These log allows us to visualize the configurations previously configured to see the commands that we have configured. With the enabling of this function we handle the fault control in a more optimal way

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Moba has represented a solution at the time of access both remotely and physically in the equipment, thanks to the help of this tool you can configure the network system of the company both by SSH, and by VNC, which has the tool

"The best remote connection tool"

What do you like best?

Mobaxterm is totally light, easy to use, configure and has the option to use it for free.

It has support for Windows, Linux and Mac.

Mobaxterm is a thin client that allows remote connections by SSH, Telnet, rlogin, serial. It also allows connections by RDP, VNC, FTP and SFTP.

The main advantage of the program is that it integrates in a single tool connections under console and SFTP when connecting to a server, not like many tools that have those two services separately.

The tool allows you to have multiple tabs open, install plugin to improve and add new functions, in addition to having embedded tools such as a network scanner, activate a tftp server and other servers and embedded tools.

The most advantageous thing that MobaXterm has is that it allows you to have 4 SSH or Telnet connections divided on the screen and manipulate them at the same time and save in a log the input and output of commands that you use when connecting to each ssh or telnet session.

What do you dislike?

The limitation of the free program is that it does not allow having more than 12 sessions in the program, it does not allow you to save the passwords used for remote connections and for the TFTP connection the waiting time is only 360 seconds. Despite the limitations, the program can be used normally.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Remote connection tool easy to customize that has nothing to envy other tools of the same genre. If you want something light, easy to use and free, this is the tool you need.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

There is easy and centralized access to servers and devices capable of supporting access to SSH, Telnet, RDP, VNC, among other protocols.

" Access to the admin console with MobaXTerm"

What do you like best?

With the help of the moba tool, configure the servers by accessing the SSH secure access protocol and the unsafe Telnet protocol. The tool also has the option to access the equipment via cable from the console. To access the equipment through SSH, only the IP address is placed in the search engine immediately if you are within the same network Moba will connect to the equipment through the selected protocol

What do you dislike?

The application does not save previous connections and antennas settings are deleted, so the administrator can not view the old configuration and be guided from the old configurations. if that is enabled it would be easier to solve problems

Recommendations to others considering the product

Remember the previous sessions to have a control of the configurations

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

with the tool I have remotely configured the network equipment and servers. With the help of the ftp protocol we can pass equipment updates.

"Remote access MobaXterm"

What do you like best?

to configure configurations in the network equipment we have configured the ssh secure access service, to access these equipments we use the moba tool since it gives us a range of applications to access the equipment remotely, has the option to access by ssh, telnet console, VNC among others. The vnc access solution helps a lot because it is a tool to access laptop and PC computers romotamente.

What do you dislike?

The storage of the configuration logs of the tools are not useful, since the logos of the configuration of the equipment go to have presnete the configurations that have realized any administrator that has acceded to the equipment

Recommendations to others considering the product

Improve management logs

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With the help of moba I have solved faults remotely without needing to be physically in the place, with a connection in the network or internet access is enough for moba to function

" MobaXtrem Terminal Emulator"

What do you like best?

To make the configurations of the equipment, it can be obtained, in turn, to make the connections of the equipment. Moba also has at its disposal the VNC connection that can perform remote access to PC and laptop computers in the same network. Moba is a very useful and indispensable tool for a network and server equipment administrator.

What do you dislike?

One of the weaknesses of the Moba tool are the logs of the configuration logs are the configuration records that are registered in the Moba console to have the information of the configurations previously made by other administrators. And perform information survey of the configurations made.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Improve the graphical interface

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Realizar las configuraciones a cualquier equipo ya sea equipo de red, servidores Linux, laptops PC entre otros. Es de mucha utilidad dicha herramienta como especialista en sistemas.

"It fulfills its purpose completely."

What do you like best?

The simplicity with which they implement useful commands to manage files in FTP is incredible. It really incorporates characteristics that make it unique in the face of competition, due to its speed, fast learning curve at the time of use, robustness and handling of the Xterminal console.

The administration of session and password offers a very good security potential, in addition it has a layer of authentication of first level. The management of your files in FTP is secure with MobaXTerm, either direct FTP or SSH. However, MobaXTerm has it.

The creation of automatic instances through tunnels through Xterminal is potential, exceeds its direct competence with this implementation.

What do you dislike?

The application will always be negative when it does not have a graphical user interface according to the technical and architectural level it represents. It is no less demanding for MobaXTerm to design better interfaces for new versions, always trying to maintain the same quality.

Recommendations to others considering the product

FTP is never easy, SSH is never fast and safe. MobaXTerm has different modalities for the users, applying and suppressing caracaterisiticas. But in any case, it is important to know that you have a great advantage over the competition.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am a developer and assistant manager in technical advice. We must always implement the best solutions for the company, to ensure that the processes are fulfilled in the way expected. MobaXTerm allows us to manage the files of the service without problems and very fast.

"Remote computing made easy"

What do you like best?

MobaXterm can connect to almost anything. It is quite flexible. It has Build in SFTP file manager which helps us manipulate and edit remote files in the tree. and with MobaXterm, there's no fiddling with multiple apps, simply connect and everything is available. Thanks to automatic SFTP. It has also got X server support.

What do you dislike?

With many good things it has also got some down sides. It is not completely a freeware. If you use MobaXterm at work, they hope you will pay for it. It's not providing any new features in Linux to warrant the outlay. Although its integration with Putty in Windows as an X client may make it worth your money. Also if you split a screen within a tab, you have to go back to single screen before you can switch to another tab. Sometimes we can have can have some performance issues. It is not common but as it is a paid tool this rarest occasions does matter.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I found this product useful as a consistent product to provide VNC access, as there are many products providing this, and a few that are consistent.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

MobaXterm literally brings a feeling of joy to Linux and Unix connectivity from Windows. I use virtualbox to have seperate OS in my windows machine. But I do not find the virtual box interface much user friendly. So to connect those virtual machines(Linux and macOSx) I use MobaXterm. and it is way to easy to use.

"A great all-in-one product for remote access to resources"

What do you like best?

I really like how tunnels can be configured for automatic instantiation so manually connecting to intermediary stations is unnecessary.

What do you dislike?

I am a little unfond of the tool-set to be entirely honest. The product itself is really valuable, and the ability to use VNC/SSH/SCP/TTY/RDP within the same application suite and modify a secondary channel to send data is really valuable, but the tools are not windows compliant predominantly so its usefulness is less appreciable in a Windows environment vs a Linux one.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for a solution to provide remote access to resources, it really doesn't matter what you are looking to use, this suite will allow you to access everything. I found this particularly useful as a consistent product to provide VNC access, as there are many products providing this, and few that are consistent and have experienced users to provide secondary support.

"The best I havve used so far"

What do you like best?

The ftp console is very usefull and saves a lot of time navigating trought folders, also de Xterm is embeded and easier to use. Many tools like ftp ssh sftp and xterm in one software. The password manager is very usefull also its session manager. It has very powerfull console commands that allow you to administrate your servers in an easier way. I dont use the professional moba x term but the personal one fills all my needs in a very good manner. Mostly used for ssh connections. It has its own file viewer which is very good and you can open files just by double clicking them in the ftp navigator, the Xterminal doesnt need much configuration to be used, its actually very simple much easier than downloading an external Xterm.

What do you dislike?

They could improve the gui and add some way to log in as admin user, also sometimes the ftp doesnt allow me to jump between disks in a pc. It is not free, but the price isnt that expensive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I havent seeen any other ssh app better than moba so far, it could be better at ftp managing.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am an it consultant and i have to deploy and configure many apps in different servers, also different environments, its sessión manager is super helpfull so is its password manager. The ftp navigator allow me to easily find the files im searching for in no time.

"Excellent tool!"

What do you like best?

Excellent tool for any type of connection, offers a variety of types of connections, ssh, telnet, rdp, vnc, ftp, sftp, serial, among the most used. In my case, I use ssh, rdp and vnc more frequently. Easy to use, a security level is excellent since I can make a file transfer quickly from windows to linux without the need of another tool. Reminded of credentials, it is last for fast connections, however, only for computers of use for a person for safety issues. Games in the free version, for work recreation. Useful tools such as port and IP scanning, screen division to view four connections at the same time. Changes at the interface or configuration level for the type of connection you need. Easy to use.

What do you dislike?

In general terms, I like the tool, I do not see any weak point, easy to use, very personal tool for the saved sessions, although they are configurable, complete and friendly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great tool for the administration of some technological infrastructure, easy to use and implement. I recommend it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Administration of different operating system platforms, control of it and fast connection. Reliable tool that has facilitated administration and control.

"Network equipment management with MobaXTerm"

What do you like best?

This tool allows me to access my equipment both by remote secure SSH and by console, to validate internal configurations of computers and servers. It also has an ftp service to send erchivos, for example some update of a .bin team. A very useful tool for a network administrator.

What do you dislike?

some of the things that I do not like Moba is that it does not store the previous configurations that were made with the equipment, to keep track of which configurations were made on the computers. It would be much better if you saved that history to manage the equipment in a better way.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Save the IP of the computers that have been previously accessed, such as to return access and not remember the IP

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The contribution that this tool has had is very great, because thanks to this tool I configure, manage and monitor my equipment thanks to Moba.

" Remote Access with MobaXterm"

What do you like best?

This tool helps me to access my network equipment configured with ssh or telnet access to perform corrective or preventive configurations, also with an ftp service that helps me send files from my laptop to my network equipment to update the network firmware . Very useful for my position that is a network administrator.

What do you dislike?

What I do not like about moba is that it does not store the previous accesses and I have to place the IP again every time I need to access. Also loses the command history that I made in previous days I can not visualize the previous configurations.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Save history previous configurations

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Thanks to this application it has helped me to access my computers both remotely and present physically via ssh as via console. when making a configuration, moba is the best tool for making configurations directly on network equipment such as servers.

"great ssh client"

What do you like best?

reliable ssh client. automatically displays sftp window on the left bar when available so you can just upload files to the server you are connecting to.

you can do multiple execution so it will send same command to all windows

What do you dislike?

latest version we have 10.5 has a bug where every few weeks it wont let me ssh to any machine. the only way I have found to bypass it is to go to settings and change the permanent root folder. After that it starts working again. I have opened tickets with their support but so far they are not able to help me.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend this

"it is the most efficient tool"

What do you like best?

This tool allows terminal connections with advanced features, so accurate that allows easier use of connection ssh, terminal and telnet. Thanks to its service tagged in the connection commander, it clearly shows all connections. In the same way, it proceeds to connect in multiple sessions without affecting the tool. Thanks to mobaxterm, it has made my life more secilla in the administration of the networks of my company

What do you dislike?

The tool in opportunities does not allow you to connect automatically after a connection of loss by ssh, what is unpleasant is that it does not allow to save several sessions, it is wanted that all connections allow to be saved by folders, to keep a control of the companies to the which I work for you

Recommendations to others considering the product

use the tool as it guarantees your work, additionally allows you to work quietly with any remote connection device

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Every day solved problems with the mobaxterm tool since it allows me to connect where it is by means of a terminal connection, as administrator of the networks, it guarantees me to solve any inconvenience coming from a router or a packet switch that is giving faults

"Great tool to manage your remote servers connections"

What do you like best?

MobaXTerm have been turn on a "must" to my daily basis working tasks.

It allows you to store (and an easy management) all my ssh, RDP, sFTP, Telnet and another much types of connections and its details (user, password, port, ssh key, connection name, etc.)

Although, the main functions are the above mention, Moba give other features like:

- Macros recording

- Running servers on your host (HTTP, TFTP, NFS, Cron, VNC...)

- Packages Manager (MobApt)

- Multi execution (run a command on all opened sessions)

- Hardware devices inspector

- SSH tunnels (port forwarding)

- Export/Import sessions option

- Customizations like logo and default settings (Professional version)

And much more.

A very good point in Moba favor is that you can use it Free (Home Edition), obviously there are several limitations:

- Max. 12 sessions

- Max. 2 SSH tunnels

- Max. 4 macros

- Max. 6 mins for Tftp, Nfs and Cron

The last but not the least, the Professional version gives you the option to Lifetime use and 12 months of professional support (the support by email is great) and no limitations of use/features.

The price (at this moment) is 49€/69$ + taxes for individual user. There is an option to specify that you are a company and save the taxes and a volume discounts available.

What do you dislike?

I really don't know anything that dislike me about Moba.

Obviously, a low price would be great, but for me is a very good price taking into account the possibilities which offer you.

Maybe, the configuration could be a little bit complicated at the beginning due there are a lot of configurations but this can be a good point as the app have an high customisation and configurable level.

Recommendations to others considering the product

No much more to add, just checking the pros and contras gives you the reasons to use MobaXTerm

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Servers' connections details storing and managing in an easy and securized way.

Time and effort save.

"Amazing Windows SSH (and more!) Client"

What do you like best?

This relatively lightweight, but extremely powerful remote computing tool is a fantastic piece of software, even with it's free edition! It is absolutely delightful to use for SSH'ing into your remote environments and supports a bevy of additional features such as embedding your remote apps on your Windows desktop via X server, having multiple SSH tunnels open, telnetting, and more (I doubt one user makes use of all the available features)! Even though it's so feature-packed, at start-up, it's just as easy to use as PuTTY.

What do you dislike?

It would be nice if Mobatek installed some themes into the software. Even though it's relatively easy to configure different styles/colors, giving some popular choices would've been appreciated. Also, if I have to dock anymore points out (now I'm just being real nitpicky), nicer, more modern-looking icons would make the UI look better.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For the most part, our usage revolves around SSH'ing into EC2 boxes for internal and client projects. The organization for saved sessions along with auto-Sftp terminal following really helps with productivity. There are plenty of functionality for pro users, but it doesn't overwhelm the user if even s/he is a novice.

"Powerful Dev Tool for All Experience Levels"

What do you like best?

The straightforwardness with which they execute valuable directions to oversee documents in FTP is mind blowing. It truly consolidates qualities that make it interesting despite rivalry, because of its speed, quick expectation to absorb information at the season of utilization, heartiness and treatment of the Xterminal reassure.

The organization of session and secret key offers a decent security potential, what's more it has a layer of validation of first dimension. The administration of your documents in FTP is secure with MobaXTerm, either coordinate FTP or SSH. In any case, MobaXTerm has it.

The making of programmed cases through passages through Xterminal is potential, surpasses its immediate ability with this execution.

What do you dislike?

The application will dependably be negative when it doesn't have a graphical UI as per the specialized and design level it speaks to. It is no less requesting for MobaXTerm to configuration better interfaces for new forms, continually endeavoring to keep up a similar quality.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

MobaXterm truly conveys a sentiment of bliss to Linux and Unix availability from Windows. I use virtualbox to have seperate OS in my windows machine. In any case, I don't locate the virtual box interface much easy to understand. So to associate those virtual machines(Linux and macOSx) I use MobaXterm. what's more, it is approach to simple to utilize.

"Mova, the best program for work easy"

What do you like best?

With MobaXTerm you can fill in as though you were managing a linux shell in windows. It enables you to work locally with a great deal of Linux utilities, yet the center of the program is to associate with different PCs with a huge number of conventions. The best thing with no uncertainty, is that you can associate with other PC with a ssh passage and go through realistic applications.

What do you dislike?

The negative part is given by the execution when realistic applications are gone through ssh burrows, since it is extremely inadequate.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In a significant number of our PCs we work with windows, however as a rule the servers and a few customers are Linux, so we require utilities like MobaXTerm to associate us to Linux stations from windows. The best thing that it gives me is to open some realistic applications that without this program would be inconceivable.

"Linux @work, Windows@home? MobaXTERM"

What do you like best?

I love that it allows me to feel like I'm on a Linux based machine on a Windows OS! After some time working in scripting and developing code I've become reliant on having a powerful CLI and MobaXTerm fulfills this need for me. I can also never ignore when something is free to use and it also has tabs on the terminal, that's perfect.

What do you dislike?

I honestly can't say I've run into anything I dislike about MobaXTerm up to now. It does everything I need it to and, quite honestly, better than any other SSH/Terminal client I've seen on Windows.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely try it. I stopped looking for another solution after finding this.

Automation and scripting are my main problems being solved by using MobaXTerm.

"Decent SSH package, good for X Windows"

What do you like best?

This product has the ability to connect via SSH or other similar protocols to systems that support it. I use it the most because I can do Xwindows over the SSH connection which can save me a step from time to time.

What do you dislike?

Setting up a connection takes some time, I wish there were fewer windows and clicks required, sometimes you just want a quick SSH session somewhere. SSH doesn't support some of the newer protocol versions, while VanDyke SecureCRT does, so I can't use this product on everything (such as HPNA).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ability to do Xwindows over SSH to our testlab environment so I can webbrowse in the testlab effectively without having to physically go there and log in on a box.

"A great terminal software!"

What do you like best?

I like the ease of use. The shortcuts, text highlighting and the support for various protocols (SSH, FTP) is quite handy!

What do you dislike?

I think the interface could use a little work. It is not really a dislike but just something that could be improved upon.

Look no further!

I use it for server-side maintenance, Python, Shell development and general file operations. MobaXTerm is easy to use and the ability to split Windows is quite handy when debugging an issue.

"Easy to format and use"

What do you like best?

I like the features on how it lets me connect to either an ssh or regular shell, and more.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes, when it goes out, it doesn't detect the programs listed in a specific server. While I would use another application, it detects it perfectly fine.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Very straight forward, and has a lot of features. I mainly use it for SSH when it comes to assignments. Very nice product for a free program.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's easy to use once you're able to connect to a server and easy to format. I open my files with Notepad++ with this.

"Complex but a must for it people"

What do you like best?

All the functionalities that offers in a single tool/programm. Is really satisfying having all the tools in the same program as migrating a workstation is really easy.

What do you dislike?

The premium features, i think some of the premium features must be on the free option.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Please re-think the premium features because for example, number of sessions, tunels and macros is a bit limited, please extend this functionalities a little bit in the free version.

the administration of all our systems in a simple and centralized way.
