Running an RLOGIN/RSH, SSH or TELNET will display remote applications on the system via X11-forwarding. The software integrates an X server and several network clients and they are easily accessible through its tab-based terminal with macro support and antialiased fonts. Entering UNIX commands is made easier Users can view several remote networks under the same platform. They are also provided with standard remote network tools and Unix commands. The software supports network clients and tools such as MOSH, RDP, SSH, VNC, X11, ftp, rlogin, sftp, and telnet. It also supports commands like awk, bash, cat, grep,ls, rsync and sed. UNIX users will find this very convenient when managing their local terminal. They can also download additional free plugins if they can’t find the necessary one on their system. When launching remote sessions with network clients, they are automatically saved and viewable at the software’s left sidebar. Users can launch a single command to multiple networks simultaneously so that they don’t have to manually execute the same commands over and over to different network clients. The software includes embedded servers with network daemons, embedded tools with quick access, access to Solaris desktop via XDMCP protocol, RDP with several configuration, MobaXterm package manager (MobApt / apt-get) with free UNIX tool downloading and text editor with syntax highlighting. Regarding terminal display, this software offers such services so that users can conveniently navigate to their terminals at any remote host. The software’s X server is fully configured with Xorg display server while supporting the latest extensions such as OpenGL, Composite or Randr. Users can also utilize Xdmcp protocol on their local terminal. It also provides SFTP browser to make sure file transferring is secured from outside intrusion. Network administrators can drag and drop files from or to the remote server. They can save their terminal password so that their next connection will require no password. The software gives several benefits for users doing remote computing. For example, the software shows an SFTP browser if users open an SSH connection to their remote server.
