    • 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 • 6 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.
