Xshell is a powerful terminal emulator that supports SSH, SFTP, TELNET, RLOGIN and SERIAL. It delivers industry leading performance and feature sets that are not available in its free alternatives. Features that enterprise users will find useful include a tabbed environment, dynamic port forwarding, custom key mapping, user defined buttons, VB scripting and UNICODE terminal for displaying 2 byte characters and international language support.
- Flexible and Powerful Tabbed Environment: Xshell tabs can be detached from the original window to create a new window or can be re-attached to a entirely different Xshell window.
- New Client Authentication with MIT Kerberos: Kerberos is widely used in today’s enterprise environment where various operating systems are used and a centralised user authentication is required.
- New Redirect Key Input to Multiple Terminals: System administrators frequently have to work with multiple remote hosts and tediously perform repetitive tasks over and over. With our new synchronised input redirection feature, what you type can be simultaneously sent across multiple selected terminals.
- New Make Your Sessions More Secure With a Master Password: Xshell encrypts all passwords and passphrases before saving them to a file. The master password adds an extra layer of security to the password encryption algorithm, thus making it harder for hackers to steal your password.
- New Prevent Unauthorised Access with Automatic Terminal Lock: When you leave your desk but keep a terminal open, anyone passing by can be granted full access to the remote server and all data in the server can be jeopardised. Xshell’s new automatic terminal lock feature prevents unwanted users from accessing the terminal session.
- New Edit Terminal Contents With a User Defined Text Editor: With Xshell 5, you can quickly open the terminal contents with a user defined 3rd party text editor. Users can configure Xshell to use an external text editor such as Sublime or Visual Studio to edit the terminal contents allowing smoother integration with the your workflow.
- User Defined Key Map Support: User requests for a key mapping feature has been implemented in Xshell 5. Terminal keys and file menus can be mapped to a user’s preferred keys and you can even map a key to start an application or to start scripting.
- Multiple Language Support for Global Users: Xshell now supports UTF8 encoding. With UTF8 support, Xshell can now display multiple languages in a single terminal screen. This feature is particularly useful if your database has entries in different languages.
- Open Multiple Sessions in a Single Window With the Session Tab: The Session Tab lets you open multiple sessions in a single Xshell window.
- Control Xshell Using the Local Shell Interface: Local shell interface is a unique Xshell feature that lets you control Xshell without having to take your hands off the keyboard. Some of the actions you can perform in local shell include establishing SSH/TELNET/RLOGIN/SFTP connections, creating new sessions, opening existing sessions, etc.
- Quick SSH/Telnet Connections Using the Address Bar: The Xshell Address Bar is the quickest and the easiest way to access your hosts. Type in the domain name or the IP address of the host in the Address Bar and click Go. It is as simple as surfing the web.
