Alternatives to MobaXterm for Windows with Free License

  • PuTTY

    PuTTY is a free and open-source terminal emulator, serial console and network file transfer application. It supports several network protocols, including SCP, SSH...

    • PuTTY only provides the SSH session terminal, no graphical means to communicate with the target system (eg upload/download files) Guest • Apr 2017 • 18 agrees and 8 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • PuTTY will not save the login password. It can save a list of hosts but is not nearly as featurefull as the MobaXterm one. Doesn't have tabs, multi execution, doesn't implement scp/sftp, etc. Guest • Nov 2017 • 7 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • MobaXterm is two Swiss Army knives. Putty, by comparison, is just a simple bread knife. Or put differently Putty is an alternative to MobaXterm only for a very few specific use cases all around bare SSH access and a simple terminal emulation. MobaXterm is way more user-friendly too.

    • not sftp client include, poor split view, old graphics Guest • Jul 2018 • 1 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • it's just a terminal, mobaxterm is a remote access solution integrating much more than just a terminal (it actually integrates putty) Guest • Oct 2018 Disagree   Agree
    • PuTTY just offers basic functionality, while the value of MobaXterm lies in it's versatility and value adding features (like integrated password safe, many protocols, keyword highlighting etc.) Guest • Nov 2018 Disagree   Agree

    • Most alternatives mentioned here have nothing to do with what MobaXterm provides as features. This is the ONLY real alternative for MobaXterm. And no, i have nothing to do with Royal TSX and i hate that it's not open source. Guest • Feb 2018 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Can't easily send commands to multiple terminals and allow user to choose which open terminals to send to like MobaXTerm, also UI isn't as's the details that matter Guest • Apr 2018 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
