Use MobaXterm SSH Client for Web Management

MobaXterm is an enhanced terminal emulator program for Windows, similar to Putty, and replacing SSH Secure Shell. It includes an X11 server for receiving X-Windows graphics, a tabbed SSH client, a graphical SFTP and FTP client, network tools and much more. For classic file-based websites, it can be used to transfer files between users' personal Windows computers and web servers, such as those hosting Lehigh personal or departmental web pages.

MobaXterm is installed on LTS Public Site and Instructor Station PCs and is also included in the current LTS UIU Windows Software Image, and can also be downloaded from the Lehigh University Install Software page (login required).

The following instructions walk through getting started with MobaXterm for accessing the content of your Lehigh Webspace on LTS-maintained systems. For additional information on other uses of MobaXterm, please see their online demo.
