MobaSSH features

System administration

MobaSSH allows you to administer your Windows computers in the same way you would do for Unix/Linux environments: MobaSSH comes with the most useful GNU utilities in order to use the same administration scripts on heterogenous operating systems.

Centralized backups

MobaSSH allows you to backup automatically your Windows computers on a centralized server. The backup files can be compressed, copied and pasted on a network drive or a backup tape. Thanks to MobaSSH, you will be able to write down the same backup scripts for your Windows and Linux/Unix computers.

Managing a pool of computers

With MobaSSH you can list the installed programs and the hardware configuration of all your remote Windows PC in a single script. You can log on to any remote Windows PC silently (the user can stay connected: nothing is displayed on his screen) for retrieving its complete configuration. The "MobaHwInfo" and "MobaSwInfo" tools have been developed and integrated into MobaSSH in this aim.

System and network monitoring

MobaSSH allows you to check which programs/daemons are started on a remote computer, but also to monitor the network daemons. The "TCPCapture" tool lists all the current network connections and displays the IP packets that cross the network interface in real time. MobaSSH also comes with some ftp, telnet, rlogin and http clients in order to be able to test some network connections to other computers.

Remote commands

Thanks to MobaSSH, you can also perform on-demand actions on remote computers without informing the logged-on user. You can silently run commands or start some programs or scripts without the need to warn the user before. You can for example install a program on a PC without any user interaction.

Related tools: bash, vim, awk, grep, sed, find, less, chmod, chown, cut, etc...

PC to PC file transfer

If you want, you can easily transfer files from a computer to another through an encrypted secure connection. You can use a SFTP client (such as MobaXterm or WinSCP) on another Windows computer or Konqueror/Nautilus/Scp on Linux/Unix.
