Xshell – Working more efficiently with it

Xshell? What is it?

Xshell is a commercial SSH, Telnet client and Terminal Emulator by NetSarang Computer, Inc helps you finish your job efficiently in a complex network environment

In the past, when working with network devices and Ubuntu, I rarely used this tool (Xshell). I often use tools like SecureCRT, Putty, etc..

In here, I see most system administrators, DBAs, and developers are using Xshell at work. It made me feel curious and want to discover Xshell.

This is short description from Xshell

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.

Xshell offers many user friendly features that are not available in other terminal emulators. These features include Zmodem file uploads by drag and drop, Zmodem file downloads by selecting the file name, simple mode, full screen mode, transparency options, and a custom layout mode. Save time and effort when performing terminal tasks using Xshell.

After doing some fun things with it, I saw Xshell is really extremely useful tool.
