Two Must have Goto SSH Clients for Windows

An SSH client is needed for any system admin. I’ve tried my fair share. Here are my top 3 goto ssh clients and when and why I use them.

#1 Moba X

Moba X is a good ssh client. This is the only SSH client that I paid for.

Moba X’s MultiExec feature allows you to open multiple sessions at the same time and mirror commands to each. multiexec

MultiExec is necessary when working with Systems such as the Fortinet 5000 Chassis, which I worked with for a few years. The Fortinet 5000 Chassis requires capturing all of the blades simultaneously to find which blade had the traffic. With Seven Blades on the Fortinet 5000 Chassis MultiExec is crucial.

#2 Putty

PuTTY is an SSH and telnet client, developed originally by Simon Tatham for the Windows platform. PuTTY is open source software that is available with source code and is developed and supported by a group of volunteers.


Putty is a simple clean no frills ssh client. Its it is no frills. Its no frills nature is a plus, I have found that other feature heavy ssh clients (i.e. Moxa X)

The Serial connection makes it a must have.
