Home » Tools » Redirect Key Input to Multiple Terminals in Xshell
This is one feature of Xshell. Other features can be found here.

System administrators frequently have to work with multiple remote hosts and tediously perform repetitive tasks over and over. With synchronized input redirection feature, what you type can be simultaneously sent across multiple selected terminals. Used in conjunction with split pane windows, you can see the results immediately on these selected terminals. The new input redirection not only sends all key inputs but can also send key combinations and function keys, not just the text strings. This allows for full control over your multiple terminal sessions without the hassle.

As you see, instead of typing the same command on each terminal (tedious), you can type one command and that command will be executed on as many terminal as you open to work with.
