Using MobaXterm Home Edition

MobaXterm Home Edition is a portable program that you can use even without administrator rights. We decided to save the single executable in a USB stick along with other essential tools we carry with us. Depending on your preferences, you can also download the installer edition.

When we launched the free terminal for the first time, Windows Firewall activated an alarm, but we allowed the program. It displayed a local terminal session in typical Unix format. The home screen displayed the IP address and session display number. The navigation pane on the left side of the terminal window had two tabs: Tools and Sessions.

The Tools tab gave us access to office and system tools while the Sessions tab allowed us to toggle among active sessions, as we could run multiple sessions simultaneously.

A graphical SFTP browser appeared when we connected to a remote server via SSH, enabling us to edit remote files directly. The embedded X server allowed us to view remote applications seamlessly on the desktop. We could determine whether the X server was running by viewing its icon at the top right corner of the program window.

MobaXterm supports serial connections and provides quick access to various other types of remote sessions, including FTP, RDP, RSH, VNC and Telnet.

The program's plugin interface allowed us to install various features from the official website, which provided a comprehensive index of Unix, X11 and other third-party tools. We even customized how the tools appeared.


MobaXterm Home Edition provides an intuitive graphical user interface that makes it easy to access remote servers. It is a complete network toolbox providing access to all necessary remote network tools and Unix commands. It provides a Linux environment on a Windows system. The user interface is fairly straightforward although the toolbar is a bit crowded.
