MobaXterm Alternatives and Similar Software

Well known and loved for its remote connection features, Windows terminal app MobaXterm sports a massive set of features spanning a much broader range of use cases. Notably, it bundles an X11 server with all the key terminal apps in one package. On that note, it's also portable so admins can easily use it at arbitrary locations without having to install it.

Similar portable tools can be found with the portable feature. Being able to switch between different sessions using tabs is important for connection apps like these so you can filter for that with the tabbed interface feature.

Most of these types of tools are strictly for the desktop though there are a few mobile tools for Android and iPhone. Windows is a more commonly supported platform, though many tools support Mac as well. Linux users tend to have a wider range of options through their terminals though some of these tools support it as well.
