MobaXterm 8.0 adds PuTTY engine, credentials, PowerShell support

20 July 2015, Mike Williams

MobaXtermAll-in-one remote networking toolkit MobaXterm 8.0 has shipped with the ability to create credentials for multiple sessions.

The latest build is packed with technology derived from the open source PuTTY, including the SSH/ telnet/ rlogin/ serial engines, the embedded terminal, a new “MobaKeyGen” graphical SSH keys generator – even a new Games menu with simple puzzles and games from the PuTTY developer. (No, really.)

Other bundling tweaks include an improved X Server (a native Windows port of Xorg), while support for Unix commands in your terminal session (bash, grep, awk, sed, rsync…). is provided by an updated version of Cygwin.


MobaXterm is a powerful collection of tools for accessing and managing remote computers

There’s welcome support for setting PowerShell as a “Local terminal” session type. This worked just fine for us, but it’s highlighted as “experimental” in the changelog, so look out for possible issues.

Regular CMD sessions are better, too, with a new Tools command to run Cmd as an administrator, and an under-the-hood tweak which should mean Ctrl+C and TAB completion work everywhere.

If you’re interested in the fine detail, developer Mobatek’s official blog post on the release tells you more.

MobaXterm Home 8.0 is a free-for-personal use networking toolkit for Windows XP and later.
