    • 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. Guest • Jul 2018 • 4 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • 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

    • It's just an SSH tool. No support for VNC, RDP, X etc... Misses a lot of features as well. Doesn't support much more then the built-in on a Mac. Where MobaXterm is soo much more. All your remote session, tunnels, etc, on loads of protocols in one centralized fast tool. Guest • Mar 2017 • 3 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • SecureCRT is a good alternative to MobaXterm, because you can run Python, Java or VBS scripts and macros to extend the functionality of the software or to automate repeatedly used functions! Good support in the forum! tiborwApr 2018 Disagree   Agree
