Hi everyone!

We just released MobaXterm version 8.1 which brings some bug fixes, some improvements and a full compatibility with the final release of Windows 10.
The major bug fixes are for the "duplicate tab" and "SFTP browser" features which did not properly work on some environments.
Overall startup speed and SSH connections have also been improved.

Full changelog :
- Bugfix: corrected the SFTP browser which was not displayed if you used a private SSH key with no passphrase
- Bugfix: advanced terminal settings were not accessible for telnet sessions
- Bugfix: corrected an issue with Powershell and Cmd sessions when a startup folder was specified
- Bugfix: the "duplicate tab" feature did not work in previous version
- Bugfix: SSH keys in a shared folder with UNC path were not handled correctly
- Bugfix: terminal resize was not handled correctly when asked by "screen", "tmux" or "reset" programs
- Bugfix: corrected the SFTP browser which did not work with GSSAPI SSH connections
- Bugfix: corrected an issue with "ascii" command which exited without displaying ascii table
- Bugfix: removed some code which made some antivirus detect games executable as false-positive
- Bugfix: the "-exec" feature was not working correctly with ssh commands in previous version
- Improvement: improved the KeepAlive function by enabling/disabling the application-level keepalive feature AND the TCP keepalive feature simultaneously
- Improvement: added some debugging information for MoTTY connections (right-click on the terminal and choose "Event log" to show it)
- Improvement: popup windows for fatal connection errors are now printed to the terminal output
- Improvement: display SSH banner before the remote server banner for better readibility
- Improvement: replaced Ctrl+Insert shortcut by Ctrl+Shift+Insert for pasting in the terminal
- Improvement: added Ctrl+0 shortcut for resetting fonts size to default
- Improvement: added the Ctrl+Left_arrow / Ctrl+Right_arrow keyboard shortcuts for "forward-word" / "backward-word" in terminal
- Improvement: increased startup speed especially if you have many sessions folders
- Improvement: you can now save your SSH keys passphrases the same way as you save passwords if you activate the setting in "Manage passwords" window
- Improvement: a middle-click on a SFTP browser item copies the item path to the SSH session
- Improvement: added the VAGRANT_DETECTED_OS environment variable which allows Vagrant to work correctly inside MobaXterm
- Improvement: if SFTP browser does not work because your remote server echoes some text, an explicit warning message is displayed in MobaXterm log file
- Improvement: added a new script which allows to create MobaXterm sessions from a plain text list of servers: "ServersListToMxtSessions.sh"

We hope you will enjoy this new release. As usual, you can download it here: http://mobaxterm.mobatek.net/download-home-edition.html and it is still portable and stealth :wink:

Thank you again for supporting MobaXterm, we are proud to see that people enjoy working with it!

Hi everyone!

We just built a new release of MobaXterm (version 8.2)!

In this new version, we added a new inline search feature that we are proud to present: you can now find some text into the terminal directly by highlighting search terms. This feature had been in our roadmap for long.

In the previous 8.1 release, we had changed the Paste keyboard shortcut to Ctrl+Shift+Insert: this choice was made because we had been warned that Ctrl+Insert or Shift+Insert were already used by other terminal applications. This was a big mistake because many MobaXterm users rely on the “Shift+Insert” shorcut. In order to provide a working solution for everyone, we implemented this as a “configurable shortcut” in order to choose the keyboard sequence for paste operations. As usual, you can modify this keyboard shortcut in “Settings” –> “Configuration” –> “General” tab –> “MobaXterm keyboard shortcuts”.

We also added an internal SSH agent based on the great PuTTY “Pageant” program which allows you to automatically load SSH keys at MobaXterm startup (OpenSSH or PuTTY types) and to forward them. In order to activate the new internal agent, you can - Go to the global settings, then in the “SSH” section - Check the “Use internal agent” and “Forward agent” settings, then add some keys to the agent keys list by clicking on the “+” button - Restart MobaXterm: the agent will load the selected keys at startup. This will allow you to perform SSH connections using the new Agent.

We hope you will enjoy this new release!

Hi everyone!

We just built a new release of MobaXterm (version 8.3)!

In this new version, we have added a security enhancement for the default configuration of X11 server. We added a new “on-demand” mode for X11: MobaXterm now shows a popup window in order for you to manually authorize each remote X11 connection.

We also added full 256-colors and TrueColor support.

Some existing features have also been improved: a new tooltip indicates columns/rows values when resizing a terminal, a tooltip shows useful information on sessions tree, some new settings have been added for remote sessions, …

Full changelog and download links are here: http://mobaxterm.mobatek.net/download-home-edition.html

We hope you will enjoy this new release!

Hi everyone!

A new version of MobaXterm 8.4 has just been released!

In this new version, we added experimental support for the SCP protocol in the SSH-browser: it means that you can now select “SCP” protocol (instead of SFTP) in your SSH session settings and MobaXterm will use the SCP protocol in order to graphically browse your remote server.

This new remote SSH-browser implementation has many advantages:
  • - SSH-browser does not open a new SSH connection anymore, but makes use of the existing terminal connection instead (SSH multiplexing)
    - if you use "OTP" (One-time password) or "2-steps authentication" mechanisms, then the SSH-browser will not ask for a new password
    - SSH-browser is not "connected" anymore and thus it stays alive as long as the terminal SSH connection is enabled
    - transfer speeds have been significantly improved
    - if SSH-browser cannot connect using SFTP protocol, it will try SCP protocol instead
    - "Follow terminal path" feature has been improved thanks to SSH multiplexing
    - charset detection (UTF-8, ISO8859-1, ...) has been improved for remote files/folders
We also improved terminal speed with strong optimizations. In fact, in previous (8.3) version, some users have encountered slowness issues caused by recent support of TrueColors. We managed to fix these slowness issues while preserving TrueColors in terminal.

Some existing features have also been improved: git commands are now properly colored (thanks to a modification in “less” command), we improved detection of running sub-process when starting or stopping MobaXterm, …

Hello PortableFreeware forumers,

We just built a new release of MobaXterm (version 8.5)!

In this new version, we added a new cool feature: live syntax coloration for MobaXterm terminal and SSH sessions. You can now right-click on the terminal and check one of the available syntax definition. We will add some more syntax definitions and we are even working on a syntax definition builder. We decided to release this feature earlier, because you may find the already available syntax definitions very convenient. For instance, the “keyword coloration” definition could be very useful in order to raise errors/warnings/information messages while parsing log files or while compiling with GCC for instance.

We also added some fixes for the “SSH gateway” feature (connection through a SSH jump-host), and we fixed some issues with the bookmarks top menu and a CPU consumption issue which could happen while MobaXterm was displaying the reconnection message at the end of a SSH session.

There is also a workaround for an issue which used to happen on Cisco equipements: Cisco SSH server does not accept SSH “WinAdj” command and replies with a SSH2_MSG_CHANNEL_FAILURE error. A workaround for this issue has been implemented in current MobaXterm release.

As usual, you can find the full changelog and download links here: https://mobaxterm.mobatek.net/download- ... ition.html

Kind regards from MobaXterm team :wink:

Hello smaragdus,

This is an odd issue, we do not manage to reproduce it on our side.

:arrow: Could you also check whether this is the proper procedure for reproducing the issue:
- start MobaXterm
- select NeonNight skin
- minimize MobaXterm to tray by using the small down-arrow button near the standard "minimize" button
- double-click on MobaXterm icon in the system tray in order to restore it
- try to close MobaXterm by clicking on the cross button

I can confirm that with this procedure, we do not manage to reproduce the issue you describe... If you perform anything different, please tell us.

:arrow: Could you also try to change your "skin" selection in MobaXterm global settings --> "Display" tab and tell us if the issue is still present?

By the way, in order not to flood this forum, it may be better to send us your answer by email (by going to MobaXterm "About" window and click on the "E-mail" button).
Thank you in advance for your answer :wink:

After I restarted Windows the problem disappeared, my fault. I also contacted the developers to apologize.

Hi everyone!


We just built a new release of MobaXterm (version 8.6)!


In this new version, we improved the new syntax coloration feature: you can now select a syntax coloration in the global settings or per session. We built a short animated demo of this feature.
By the way, we created this demo with a great new software tool that we will soon publicly (and freely) release: it is a tool which will allow you to create animated software demonstrations like this one, which are lossless, very lightweight and which work on any device (pure HTML and PNG).


In MobaXterm, we also added a new Z-modem feature: you can now transfer files directly through the terminal by launching sz, rz, lsz or lrz on your remote host and choosing “Z-modem send” or “Z-modem receive” in terminal right-click menu.
OpenSSH (CVE-2016-0777 and CVE-2016-0778 bugs) have also been fixed: this fix is for manual SSH connections only (ssh sessions which are launched from a local terminal command). MobaXterm SSH sessions (launched using the graphical sessions manager) are not concerned by these OpenSSH bugs.
There is another important feature addition: the new setx11dpi tool allows you to retrieve or to set Xserver DPI settings. For instance, if you type setx11dpi 192 and then launch a graphical application such as “gvim”, its graphical interface will use High DPI rendering.


As usual, you can find the full changelog and download links here: http://mobaxterm.mobatek.net/download-home-edition.html

Kind regards from MobaXterm team :wink:

Hello Joker,

For the moment, this feature is not available in MobaXterm because
- there are many failure possibilities for this mechanism (client firewall, filters from intermediate network equipment, ...)
- the implementation is complex, especially if we want it to work when using a SSH gateway, a proxy or a SSH tunnel.

--> We recommend you to download the "knock" program from here and use it to script your knocking mechanism.

Hope this helps :wink:
