MobaXterm v8.0 Updated

SYSTEM on 20 Jul 2015
  • 26MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 20 Jul 2015
  • Suggested by Mobatek

MobaXterm provides a basic set of Unix commands (GNU/Cygwin) in a single file. The program integrates an X server and some network clients such as SSH, telnet, rlogin, SFTP, etc. accessible through a tabbed terminal.

Key features:

  • X server fully configured (based on Xorg)
  • Tab-based terminal with anti-aliased fonts and macro support
  • Easy DISPLAY export from any remote host
  • X11-Forwarding capability in OpenSSH
  • Numerous plugins including the GNU C/C++ compiler, GIT, SVN, MPlayer, and more.

System Requirements: Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8
Writes settings to: Application folder
Dependencies: None
Stealth: ? Yes. Passwords are saved to the "ini" file by default (this can be a security risk if someone else has access to your USB drive). If you already have passwords in the registry, passwords will still be saved there.
Unicode support: Yes
License: GPL
How to extract:
  1. Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice
  2. Create an empty text file and paste the following:


  3. Save the file to the application folder as MobaXterm.ini
  4. Launch MobaXterm_Personal_[version number].exe

I use this software daily in all my network admin duties. It's a wonderful piece of software and I will gladly recommend this to all my friends.

MobaXterm alternative: For a much more compact suite of Native Win32 port of stand-alone GNU utilities, *provided an X-Server is not required*, consider also

package download (3.36Mb):

The classic, finely honed, single-purpose Unix tools "cat | grep | head | tail ..." are all in there,
(all 118 of them), including the perennial soul-searching 'whoami' operator...;-)

Tested and found to be running fine under winXP. Recommended.

The plethora of information to display including Fan speeds, CPU, HDD, and MOBO temps in the notification tray makes this thing perfect for me. I let Process Explorer handle the memory/cpu/network/etc usage and let this thing display cpu/mobo/etc temps and I get a wealth of information in one area. It doesn't use too much resources either. Highly recommended.

@Ateka: The most important part -- The driver is installed when you run and it is removed after you close it. The HKCU key is settings and not important. It's not stealth, it requires admin rights but it IS portable.

The latest version of HWiNFO32/HWiNFO64 is 4.50.
