Xshell Description

Xshell is a multilingual emulation program that supports protocols such as SSH, SFTP, TELNET, RLOGIN and SERIAL, offering you a command line shell to easily and securely gain access to Unix/Linux hosts directly from your Windows PC.

The emulator adopts the standard shell appearance and integrates seamlessly with other Windows applications. Local commands, file management features and tunneling are just some of the advantages that it brings you.

When first running the program, you have to select the session you want to connect to or create a new one. Even though this process is not complicated, it does offer you the possibility to choose from a variety of options for establishing the connection. Furthermore, you can connect to a remote computer using the default session that Xshell provides, thus saving you the time to create a new one.

For each protocol type, you have the possibility to choose different preferences. You can optionally send “keep-alive” messages at predefined time intervals, as well as use ZLIB compression in order to enhance the performance in a slow network environment.

Xshell is capable of emulating multiple terminal types, including VT100, VT220, VT320, XTERM, LINUX, SCOANSI, and ANSI. Moreover, you can customize the initial configuration of the terminal. Using the compose bar allows you to send a string of text to multiple servers simultaneously, while setting frequently used strings eases your work.

The program offers you the possibility to connect to multiple sessions at the same time. You can use it to send and receive files or upload ASCII files, while monitoring the whole transfer process. Moreover, in order to do repetitive tasks automatically, Xshell offers you the possibility to use scripts.

Xshell combines ease of use with powerful features for its professional users, such as key mapping and scripting support, dynamic port forwarding, protocol tracing and advanced security options.
